Reminiscences (Memorial to a Common Citizen)

Levy Oliveira

  • Instrumentation: 8-channel fixed medium


The piece is a reflection about life itself. The music acts as if the listener was inside the mind of someone close to death as they are recalling important moments of their life such as childhood, sexual experiences, parties, and work and death. The piece uses recorded and synthesized sounds to suggest all these environments, sometimes clearly and sometimes blurred, illustrating passages of life that almost anyone can relate with.
