BALLOONS

Sunny Sunday afternoon.
Shining streets, sidewalks full of people.
Children eating ice cream, balloons floating in the air.
Waving hands.
A few job seekers, twenty-something.
Recruiters.
Hooray for the parade!
It’s a day before tomorrow.

Balloons is an installation consisting of spoken words, soundscape, musical passages and visual elements. It’s done mainly using piano, inside piano effects and human voice.
