Sustain The Unsustainable

by Mystified and Daniel Barbiero



Daniel Barbiero sent Mystified some very nice sounds he had recorded with his double bass. Mystified processed these sounds and added his own to create this industrial soundscape.

Mystified thought of the title, as this seems to be a current problem, that people are asked to try to sustain systems that are in unsustainable conditions-- fossil fuel consumption, the environment, the economy-- both on micro and macro levels.

Sustain is also a musical term that means to hold a note.

We are asked to strike a chord and hold it-- and keep holding-- even when this seems unlikely or impossible.

Special thanks to Daniel for his participation and inspiration.
