‘Fireworks’ by Norman Long

Name: Norman W. Long
Location: Chicago, IL USA
Title: Outside my widow, 4th of July, South Side of Chicago (edit) 5:00min mp3

Description: The question of what is the sound of recession haunted me for a couple of days before I decided to do this piece. Especially since I am one of many African Americans who have been affected by this recession and lives on the south side of Chicago, which is predominately African American. The recording of my neighbors setting off firecrackers, roman candles, etc. in the rain is a response to the economic silencing a recession does to a community. I see/hear the fireworks as a celebration of existence more than a celebration of freedom, liberty and or patriotism.

‘Pound a Bowl’ by Kevin Logan

Name: Kevin Logan
Location: London, UK

Title: Pound a Bowl
Description: The practice of selling a bowl of a particular fruit or veg’ for a pound is obviously geared towards people on lower incomes.

This is the obverse of the relatively recent trend towards rather expensive ‘organic’ produce.

The composition is both a study of the performative nature of traditional street hawkers, and an observation on the socio-economic patterns in food consumption.

‘Deb(e)atEs’ by Dario Lazzaretto

Name: Dario Lazzaretto

Title: ” deb(e)atEs ”
Description:
What happens in Italy, where every political party seems to deny this global crisis.

Left and Right of the parliament speak of exactly the same things, and don’t propose any changes at all.

This is not a political work, but just an observation. Mp3 is a popular and fast format, easy to transmit.
