“We Are Not Alone”: Soundwalk Collective for Louvre Abu Dhabi
Sep. 30, 2020
The Louvre Abu Dhabi museum is happy to announce the premiere of SOUNDWALK COLLECTIVE – WE ARE NOT ALONE.
This sound creation is interpreted by Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Hussain Al Jassmi, Zhou Dongyu, Nina Kraviz, Wim Wenders & Jean Nouvel, in 6 different languages, the sound piece concludes with an M.I.T. algorithm defining the names of future exoplanets.
This sound creation from Soundwalk Collective takes us thousands of years into the future: a time where super intelligence and interstellar travel is the norm. One is invited to discover the Louvre Abu Dhabi and its surroundings to understand history, its impact and meaning in a post-human galaxy, while questioning free will, human nature and destiny.
Humans have a unique ability for abstract thinking paired with an affinity for the past, giving rise to museums that capture history and preserve it. We reflect as we look into the future: building on the work of our ancestors, where is our species headed? After all, lived reality is always a construction of the imagination
