Sorry for the silence
Published the 10/02/2021
Usually, we apologize for the noise (when we're polite) – except during celebrations (when everybody gets together to make noise).
The Great Lockdown of 2020 revealed to the entire World a soundscape never heard before. As if the everlasting surge of the major noise had receded, uncovering a vast beach of minor, rare, forgotten sounds. And everywhere on the planet amazed ears got together in a collective listening transformed by the shutdown of the machines. Then the machines started again. But the artists did not, or hardly.
So, sorry for the silence.
But again this year, we will do everything to thwart the restrictions and play silences made more beautiful by the most beautiful noises!
