hellish song - 3 scenes
It is no longer possible to bring to life animals that have been extinct from the earth. It is no longer possible to hear in the Brazilian forest the sounds of the Gritador-do-Nordeste, of the Limpa-Folha-do-Nordeste, of the Caburé-de-Pernambuco... With a digital help I bring to our human ears the spirits of these three extinct Brazilian birds singing three emblematic scenes of the ongoing legal-media-police coup taking place in Brazil; a kind of scream-mantra-antidote. Using softwares and free plugins shared on the Internet I was able to process the voice records of these birds and transformed them into tonal scale. Such images were digitally transformed into sheet music and the singing, accompanied by a grand piano, played as a possible war-noise against the ongoing Brazilian proto-dictatorship. The state of environmental exception goes hand in hand with the fascism of the coup d'etats. The images’ subtitles say: Bolsonaro is elected president of the Republic, Bolsonaro signs decree that facilitates possession of weapons, Bolsonaro officially orders that the military celebrate the coup of 64.
