Marco Godoy, Reclamar el eco, 2012.

Marco Godoy (Spain, 1986), Reclamar el eco, 5’25”, 2012.

In this work the slogans that are sung at demonstrations in Spain have been adapted into a musical piece, using the composer Henry Purcell’s scores as a reference. Since the crisis started, “It’s called a Democracy but it’s not a Democracy”, “We are not scared” and “These are our weapons” are common phrases at demonstrations, sung in monotone by thousands of people. In the video a choir called Solfonica sings the piece in an empty theatre. Solfonica is an assembly-based choir that sings only at demonstrations in Madrid, its a “protest choir”. The songs that were composed for the video are now used on by Solfónica as part of their repertoire.
