Athens, May, 2021,Pandemic
A train station is a place of waiting . Someone arrives , someone departs. Someone is happy someone is sad. It is a place where happiness and sorrow occurs. At the same time. Unknown people are coming together for a while and yet their feelings are the same There is also the neutral situation where someone is coming or going to his /her work . But they all share common feelings even not shared. Arrivals and departures during the pandemic is also symbolic. Mostly departures are occurring . The same feeling. For all of us. We are waiting .
This sound sculpture is a composition consisted of a solo clarinet music line and a field recording of a train passing by, arriving or departing , near the village Milies at the Pelion mountain in Thessaly, the land of the Centaurs in the Greek mythology.
