EnvironMentally Sound Pierre Desmarais

This composition is a reflection on our gasoline/car obsessed society, and how this obsession is threatening our natural environment.

A car starts its engine. It rumbles, then gradually fades away. Voices of crickets can be heard, but they are slowly silenced as something menacing approaches. The car has returned.
