why i have done the 9/11 opera:

in spring 2008 i listened to a special feature on german radio about modern media.
the people who made this had a focus on the questions:
how far can media go?
what can they show and what not?
what is allowed?
whatīs not?

they took an example we all remember:

9/11...


from these days...

how often did we see the towers fell?
how often did we see how the planes crashed into the wtc?
how often did we see these unbelievable pictures of white dust covering the streets of manhattan?
how often did we see people jumping into death?

did anybody count?

...until today?

once, as some of these pictures appeared on tv again (during a commercial break - primetime between a "for the whole family"- movie), my kids told me that they have seen that a few times before...
and they thought itīs from an action-film...
this time these pictures were used for selling a scientific magazine...

...to put the wheel of history into reverse:

what happened exactly?
is there really a conspiracy?
against whom?
us?

did the bush administration use the attacks to start the war against iraq?

did somebody else used the attacks to earn money?

a lot of people earned a lot of money...
sad but true...
and they still do...

itīs an easy thing:

put sex and crime and death onto the cover of a magazine and the people will buy it!




i always wanted to do a song for the ones who died...
about the shock-wave that hurts all of us...

...including me.


i searched for "material" about 9/11.
i found conspiracys.
i found liars.
i found questions.
i found out how to start a war.
i found out what media has made of it.
i found out that most of the media-makers
DONīT CARE about the people who lost their lifes...

the first question of a media-man on every "event" is:
"how can we use this?"

why i have done the 9/11-opera?

to show that we are surrounded by a media which can change our meanings in every way it wants...
to show that the owners of all the tv-stations
wouldnīt help you when you lie there bleeding -
they will film it - and then sell it.


who can verify that the media tells us the truth?
not only on 9/11...
what is truth?
do really believe that in the 9/11 remix - the incoming call at 05:50 - do you believe that i really did a phonecall? and that the giggling woman is a real person?
do you believe in santa claus?
can you attest the opposite?


and, in context of 9/11 -
some started a war - and theyīre still at war...
against terrorism and mass-destruction guns which has never been found...

and, in context of 9/11 -
some want to circumsize our freedom...
we are all suspicious of being terrorists...

have you seen the cameras on the streets?
all funny webcams?
do you know your creditcard-number?
there are some people who know what you have bought at the video-shop last year...

who could use all the datastreams in the internet?
do you know that some people know that youīre reading this?

i donīt want to put oil in the burning fires of all these conspiracy-therozies...
i think itīs stupid and senseless...

but in fact the attacks on the 9/11 were very useful for some people to legitimate their ideas of more control...
and i think you and i know who wants to get more control...

this is a very complicated world...
do we know anything at all?


i never wanted to hurt anybodys feelings...



so this is part 1 of my little opera.
it starts with an interview, a friendly "good morning, america!" and then the attacks of the 911 and a lot of tv stations telling all the same.
then "experts" got doubts.
then again a lot of TV (for your ears!!!) including a little "best of" of gwb, mixed with sports and dumb anchormen...

if you looooooove television and never ask questions, my advice to you is:

"EAT THIS!"

Good, that you keep the fires burning. I have been reading a lot about this recently, so this is an apt backdrop. I don't want to believe what i read, but the more i do, the more i think there is something very wrong. i agree, too many of us have buried our heads in the sand. Interesting....track, i feel there could be more.

i am glad you are paying close attention to the "put politics in songs not blogs" idea... it is more interesting this way.

Intense soundscape!.
Man , I read in the paper that France wants to export arms to Irak , but the Americans are now in control over the weapontrade with Irak!. It's business as usual! Some things will never change! One day another attack will come, and don't tell me you didn't see it coming!
Gonna listen to part two now!
Well Done, Dr!

Holy ****ing **** for real. I don't know if you're doing a video on this but if not, it's a helluva Rorschach--reminds each of us where were were when the towers were hit and fell. And 50 years from now, we still won't know what happened at Pearl Harbor, much less JFK and now this horriffic event.

So many of these sounds are etched into my soul.

I'm not sure if I like you playing with them or not here. I guess because they hurt.

This is certainly powerful. But I will not be listening to it again.

1 of my friends, Danny from Las Vegas was in the World Trade Center when it happened & survived - your mix & the underlying music esp. the guitar) adds to the fear & your mix of all the craziness & un-prepared media chatter makes me feel like I was there...I almost couldn't finish listening to this (it's that intense) - it's an amazing piece that uses reality (I like to do that too when I can) - I can't wait to hear & download the whole opera - I feel like I should pay you for this - seriously! - Rob B-)
