Centre for Energy Ethics
Ethereal electronic soundscape created by the brilliant psych pop duo pecq. This soundscape was commissioned by the Centre for Energy Ethics for its February 2021 launch. It is a hauntingly beautiful mélange of field recordings by the Centre’s researchers, superimposed over barely discernible chants from climate activists, and interwoven with electronic sounds that evoke, for me, the static discharge or vibrations of millions of invisible electrons that surround us. This experimental artwork, filmed by Ross Harrison, transported me into a subliminal dreamworld full of creative tension between hope and despair, between light and dark, between the past and the future. It is wonderful.
