Chants move through the busy streets of a protest as if liquid. Trickling, bubbling, cascading, seething. Rivers of sound carry, mutate and weave over and away from you. Some erupt suddenly whilst others wash over and dry up, leaving only a distant murmur in their place. A torrent of emotion carving its way through the city.
Seethe was written for the Cities and Memories: Sounds of Protest project and is composed from the sounds of protest in Paris on Boulevard Beaumarchais in October 2010. The original recording ‘Rhythms of Protest’ was made by Des Coulam. More information about this recording can be found at: https://soundlandscapes.wordpress.com/2011/11/10/rhythms-of-protest/
