- a sonic nightmare-
Michel Waisvisz creates live and awake:
a mutating loop
music, animals and machines
The 'correct' version of 'Peter and the Wolf' for electronics and animals in favour of the return of wolves in our industrialised meadows and mountains
Waisvisz music is, at present, situated somewhere between: Urban Ethnotronic, Electro-Acoustique, Rhythm & Zoom, Animatronics, Modern, NarraSymph and CountryNoise.
About Muta Lobo:
no more musical stories about 'grandfathers' and 'hunters'
and a 'nice' little boy
(who condemned the wolf to a life long sentence in the zoo in order to prevent it from being shot by the hunters)
Today things are different:
the shepherds of the sheep and the farmers of our food
who kill wolves
because wolves do not contribute to industry
Peter and the other children of the shepherds and farmers
dream of mutating into wolves
they'd rather die as wolves
than live as
something is misunderstood about gene manipulation:
some of the new 'wolves' mutate into sheep....
now nobody knows who to shoot
and you cant possibly use this story to explain
the instruments of the orchestra in a nice way,
the instruments of the orchestra have become
man becomes a sample of himself
even wild animals are turned into samples
and sample players repeat this story
over and over
like wolves walking in circles
when captured in zoos
Somewhere on a mountain in the south of France
sheep stretch their heads in the air
and they howl...
and they howl, and they sing
and this makes Peter wake up.....
and immediately he starts composing:
Le cauchemar sonique de Pierre
le retour du loup a Avignon
ou on danse.....
..on y danse ...
.....tout en rond...
and after that:
he really wakes up
thinking: this is not just a dream
