for five voices, sound installation and electronics


The central theme of this piece is the suffering of innocent victims of war, that are helpless and are not able to run or fight the attack. It focuses on the horror of the moment(s) of the traumatic event as well as the reverberations of it (PTSD) and its effects on several mental aspects of the victims life after the attack. An aspect of Performance Art is implemented in this piece as well. A clean operatic voice shifting to extreme vocal techniques known in the world of extreme Metal vocalists and keeping the same pitch is used to, on the microlevel, bring you into the short but extremely traumatic experience and stretch the seconds of the attack with the sounds of a torturous scream coming from a deep place of pain, horror and uncertainty.
