Local Suicide - Employment. Back

Artwork Description

In our composition, we delved into the intricate dynamics between Eleusis' citizens and the prevailing issue of unemployment. Our focus centered on two contrasting aspects: the negative interactions permeating the community and workplaces, and the positive elements of responsibility and equity. Through our exploration, we aimed to shed light on the transformative potential of participation and cooperation in addressing the challenges faced by the citizens of Eleusis.

Drawing inspiration from the prevalent absence of participation, dialogue, and collaboration among employees and local residents, we observed how unemployment fosters disillusionment and isolation within the community. This environment poses challenges to fostering collaboration and stifles progress due to the lack of meaningful engagement and open conversations. 

Moreover, the relationships between employees and managers often suffer from a lack of cooperation and separation. This distancing exacerbates the divide and prevents the formation of strong bonds based on trust and mutual understanding. The absence of a collaborative culture stifles innovation and inhibits the collective potential of the workforce.

In contrast, the axis of responsibility and equity presents a ray of hope for Eleusis. It emphasizes the importance of accountability and fairness in addressing unemployment and fostering cooperative relationships. By embracing a sense of responsibility, individuals and organizations can actively contribute to the betterment of the community.

Accountability acts as a driving force for positive change. It encourages both employees and managers to take ownership of their actions and decisions, fostering an environment where cooperation thrives. By being accountable for their choices and outcomes, individuals can forge stronger connections and build trust among themselves.

Equity plays a pivotal role in reshaping relationships within the community. It advocates for equal opportunities and fair treatment, regardless of one's background or circumstances. When equity becomes a guiding principle, it levels the playing field and cultivates an inclusive environment that values diversity and promotes cooperation. Employees and managers working together towards shared goals, united by the principles of fairness and justice, can transform Eleusis into a hub of collaborative progress.

Our objective was to craft an auditory realm that encapsulates the anguish inherent in such circumstances through the amalgamation of diverse sounds and a medley of vintage modules. Amidst this sonic tapestry that conveys agony, a persistent and soothing melody emerges, serving as a profound symbol of unwavering hope. By harmoniously blending layered sounds and employing various synths and field recordings, our aim was to create an immersive experience that artfully contrasts the prevailing anguish with an underlying tone of resilience and optimism.

Our composition’s goal is to shed light on the complex dynamics of unemployment in Eleusis, focusing on the negative interactions rooted in a lack of participation, dialogue, and cooperation. However, we also explored the potential for positive change through the principles of responsibility and equity. By embracing accountability and fostering an equitable environment, Eleusis can bridge the gaps between employees and locals, as well as employees and managers. Through active participation, open dialogue, and a collective commitment to cooperation, Eleusis can forge a path towards a brighter future, where the community stands united in its efforts to combat unemployment and create a more prosperous and inclusive society. We incorporated the data by using the provided midi notes to trigger a modular synthesizer rack and various effect units.
