CONDUCTOR NOTES PROGRAM NOTES

Murallas is a miniature process which evolves through acumulation of tradicional songs Power is not something that is acquired, seized, or shared, something that one holds on to
until a climax where the video is triggered and music decreases, playing a cloud made of USA national anthem or allows to slip away; power is exercised from innumerable points, in the interplay of
or a comercial Pop songs. None of the songs need to be in synch. non-egalitarian and mobile relations. Where there is power, there is resistance.
The conductor decides when approximately each of the instruments start playing (in the order stablished on score). Walls serve the same social functions as prisons and mental institutions- to define, classify,
control, and regulate people.
He also triggers and builds the cloud of words (China/Taiwan) and gives the signal to start the video.

He must control the gradual growing of the dinamics and its dissapearance.
