reV takes its cue from the Latin word revolutionem that means to return.
For this composition there are recordings of online television broadcasts in real time, from the protests that took place in Madrid against the current political and economic system, in favor of the principle of popular sovereignty.
In this regard one has to consider that online broadcasters have had numerous problems due to complaints from the institutions that have tried to stop their transmissions several times.
reV was composed following the very dynamics of the stream and its interruption; fragments of yelling, movement, instruments, comments, etc. were placed between sound streams obtained by isolating and elaborating background noises from the original recordings to reinforce the idea of human action, its expressiveness and the impossibility of its complete annihilation.
The human being stripped of any pre-fabricated system in search of its origin and existential integrity.
Special thanks to Canal 33 Madrid and all the people of the Plaza.
