The Liberation of Europe Thomas Gerwin

The Liberation of Europe was composed 2001 for Phonurgia Nova, France. The material for this piece consisted solely of the voices of prominent politicians and important individuals — such as Nelson Mandela, Jean-Paul Satre, Pelé, Boris Jelzin, Mao Tse-Toung, Eisenhower, Jean Gabin, King Baudoin and others — spoken in very important moments in history of the 20th century. Although each single one utters words that weight heavy and reach far, together they start to s(w)ing.
