Work instructions:  


Terra Santa, 17mn 11.

It was after a trip to Palestine and Israel (April 2018) that the idea for this piece was born.

The Holy Land, a sacred land of religious crossroads, shared spaces, where voices follow one another, mix. Whispers on street corners, prayers sung, cries. The story of a place revealed by the memory of a thousand-year-old stone. A ballad in a soundscape like an awakened hallucination. 

This piece is made up of field recordings recorded in Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
