‘Agression’ by Manuel Xastre

Name: Manuel Xastre
Location: London, UK

Title: “Aggression”
This composition is a phonological response to the sociological impact due to Recession. Usually in those moments the violence, aggression and noise are manifestations and responses to the general social frustration. My piece explores through the cacophony of sounds and then the chantings, a passage in time from chaos to order, since contemporary societies hypothetically living in security, in moments of Recession are less able for the hope, when the Recession can also mean a potential for a new form of living and produce.
