guernica 2012

Published on Apr 27, 2012 by 
Completed on the 75th anniversary of the Bombing of Guernica, "Guernica 2012" intends to honor and reflect upon the many lives lost throughout "Operation Enduring Freedom" in and around Afghanistan. Each note represents a life, arranged by month and orchestrated by nationality, using only the fundamental notes and harmonics of the symphony orchestra. Although errors and omissions are certain, none were intended.
