Bystanders

Petra Lindholm

Bystanders is an experimental journey, one thing leads to another in a weird subconscious logic, like a dream or a collective memory. A sunrise over and over again, bees singing about their future, yellowing forests, air cooling fans, airport runways, railway platforms, a sea in many colors, a hurricane, electrical wires, the earth from space, a desert, light particles, all nestled in with a soundtrack full of samples, voices, and the pulse of the Earth which extends all the way into outer space.
