Voices In The Wilderness:
Dissenting Soundscapes and Songs of G.W.'s America
After the election results were in and Kerry asked the American people to get behind Bush,
we became highly aware that there may be no stopping this Empire's atrocities. We were even more screwed than we thought.
That understanding frightened us and still does. This sense of powerlessness to the Bush regime's primitive tactics is ongoing for many of us.
With incredible humility, the artists on this CD have offered their work. Some of it has been edited down.
All of it is out of its' usual listening context. Collectively, it is against the grain of traditional music aesthetics.
We chose to include every "voice" that was invited and then offered to this composition (more than we expected) with an intention of creating
a document of dissent, a plea for peace, and a push against the complacency that can envelop us. Ultimately, this is a reminder to not be silent
during these times. --M.S. & ED-I, February 2005, San Francisco, California.
