Michel Waisvisz creates live and awake:

Peters

sonic nightmare,

a mutating loop

of

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

are industrialists

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

sheep

but

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

samples anyway

endlessly looping

while gradually

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
