This new album by David Chesky is a sincere statement of worries the composer feels necessary to share with the world, in which all of us live and die. It's monumental form allows us to reflect on many tragic events (such as the latest disaster of COVID-19). By entering our lives, it unavoidably demands us to define our beliefs. Chesky's music not only concerns our preferences in aesthetics, but also demands political awareness from us (while being far away from political activism). We are confronted with phenoma we do not understand, but which ultimately determine our choices - what really has, had and still will have a meaning in our lives. We have to learn to separate the "important" and "unimportant" things and events. No one is obligated to go to the "barricade," but we are simply obligated to recognize injustice in all forms and name it personally (even in silence) instead of accepting terror as something "common" and "far away from us."
