”Darkest Hour“ is a sound-centric multimedia performance piece based around materials located in the People’s History Museum’s Archive concerning the refugee situation during the First and Second World War. The performance mixes the material of the archive with sound and audio snippets concerning the current refugee debate, illustrating the timelessness of the issue. With many problems solved but their solutions apparently forgotten, and in the light of repeating history, we hope to demonstrate the relevance of the archival material in present day, too.
While no raw chemical sounds are heard, chemical processing features in the transformation of the audio and video material.
The piece is a collaborative effort between @falk-morawitz and Guillaume Dujat.
