“Where Are You ?” is a musical composition for prepared piano, percussion and analogue electronic sounds.
The tape part of “Where Are You ?” is based on field recordings from Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman’s 2011 trip to Rwanda. Lierman manipulated them via a reel to reel tape recorder and a Walkman cassette player. The instrumental score is a musical translation and interpretation of a text about the Rwandan Genocide from April 1994.04_Aurélie Lierman - tape & light
