Peace of War

In this audio work, I wanted to juxtapose different ideas and thoughts of war and peace in current global settings. Ideas such as innocence, rage, fear, hatred, joy, death, and ignorance are discussed within this work. What roles do these topics play in our global society and more so within our individual lives and minds. What causes one to be full of joy and another to never know such a thing? What causes one to experience much suffering and another to experience it very little? Does an individual choose? If not, how do these differences come about? Do internal struggles affect these ideas? Are they or can they be controlled? How do these thoughts play into a bigger picture of modern war and peace?
