Contradictions Gabriela Hébert [gabrielahebert]

Contradictions is a composition that visits the potential of the extremes through softness. A conversation of opposing worlds; technology and nature, tangible and abstract. Bringing the listener into a soundscape, a melancholy of an imaginary world that we can all relate to. The disconnection between the natural sounds of rain and birds contrasting the urban ambiance of cars passing by immerses us into time and scenes changing. This piece uses entirely recordings, following me from the city to the forest, the bells of an abandoned park to chains and glitches from power outlets. It was made in the idea of cinematographic images and how they relate to sound and make us travel with our ears, getting us in a loop of pulsation of feelings. The glitches symbolize the paradox of the world coexisting together in the melodies of modernity.
