Hearing and seeing


En Chantant vers l’abîme – Singing to the abyss. The work describes, for example, the way in which we as humanity deal with Mother Earth. Cheerfully whistling into the verdirb. Singing loudly on the abyss. Johan de Wit composed this work in 2006. Well before the financial crisis and the “Fridays for Future” movement. Anyone who walks through the world awake has seen since 1972, when the Club of Rome published its report “The Limits to Growth”, that we all clearly close our eyes as a community and do not move. En chantant vers l’abîme is an ode to everyone who points the finger at politics and corporations, but doesn’t question their own lifestyle.
