Ceci n’est pas durabilité traverses through sonic landscapes recorded during the course of obtaining and preparing food. For some, the execution of these endeavors recalls our daily opportunity to vote (for or against the imperative social change that would protect our fragile environment.) Of course, ceci n’est pas durabilité is a piece of music, not actual acts between our environmental, social, and economic (im)balance. Recalling these sounds’ representation within reality was an absent notion throughout the creation of the work. The piece creates hyper-real and virtual worlds that explore the subtle structural elements of the incorporated sounds. The work’s title acknowledges the contradiction between these thoughts and the inevitable, diverse interpretation of the recognizable, extramusical material.
