Coffee Without Sugar

6’34’’  –  2016

This sound piece is about the taste of failure, in a region where wars never stop.  A war is over and a war is looming, and this region has no time to breathe, or to see, or to understand what is befalling it. The ghosts of the dead are circling over the city and the heads of its inhabitants, whose eyes are open without the possibility to see. As if the eyes have deserted the faces.

Vocal: Rima Kcsheick and Fatima Bazzi
