Flying seashells

Beginning with sounds of planets and comets, and ending on the need we have to connect to a culture as a way to take control over our habitat, the audio piece wanders over collective narratives, individual story-telling and identity building.
An answer to the invitation to participate at the launch of a radio, and with 60 minutes at my disposal, I took the opportunity to develop a narration presenting different views that we human have had in our western cultural tradition. In all their differences, our traditions are very similar in the contemplation we've developped upon the so called « animal kindom », this definition conveniently separating us from all the rest of the living species. Putting side by side scholars readings and personal thoughs, the narration is accompanied by a sound composition, five songs and two audio pieces.

Please contact me if you wish to listen to the audio work.
