ELECTRIC BIRDS II
After Electric Birds, Alice Orpheus felt he had something more to say, and could not resist it seems to come back to his nocturnal moods, looking as he says for ” silence in music”. Electric Birds II takes its full meaning at the heart of Paris. If the music vocabulary stays the same with both Steve Reich’s shadow and the influence of Stockhausen concrete music researches, Electric Birds II does not adresses the naïvety of a city dweller who’s forgotten nature. It underlines the way our city have taught us to leave without the presence of a natural environnement up to the point where we keep on building ways to replace it. The topic of ecological behaviour is obviously related to the notion of causality and the refusal of mankind to understand the consequences that will come out of its choices. Nevertheless, Electric Birds II focuses of the beauty within this impossible equation.
