Back to Work (G20)

Jul 26, 2017, 01:01 PM

Reimagined by Eduardo Abrantes.

"Back To Work is an sound collage dealing with mysticism, utopian desire, and resistance, both for and against change. It includes manipulated samples of composer and Christian mystic Hildegard of Bingen's (1098-1179) choral piece Canticles of Ecstasy, fragments of the original field recording in London, and a sample and slightly pitched detail of a voice of dissent, ironically against protest. Back To Work is about raising one’s voice, about the utopian mindset that often runs parallel to activism as its mystical counterpart, it is about a gathering of voices as a sonic ritual and the joy, melancholy, and weirdness of it all."
