No words will be able to express the motions that you’ve all been through in those last few months. Like most of us, I remain unable to deliver a satisfying discours on our world.

ELECTRIC BIRDS II by Alice Orpheus
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”.

Shaped as workshop around the concept of dystopia as my piece is called 2084 and is a clear tribute to George Orwell’s 1984, I was lucky enough to spend time with kids thinking about today’s and tomorrows world. As a result, I recorded some of their answers as part of the piece itself. Here is the Ouverture of 2084. As it i
