Fan the Flames of Discontent - Bonita Oliver and Dorian Wallace
with Tenth Intervention and Sing In Solidarity

Creator Statements

Bonita:
Humans have evolved extremely fast in the ways of technological advancement and the ability to think in the abstract. For all of our advancement in these ways we are still (comparatively speaking) unevolved in terms of spiritual consciousness. Amidst the current changes unfolding globally we are being offered a chance for deeper contemplation about our values, spirituality, and what connection really means. We have a chance to slow down and move in flow with our inner cycles rather than trying to race along under pressure. The pressure to consume, to conquer, to distance what is unfamiliar… It is all reactionary and based in fear. If we sit within our stillness we can feel the earth, that she is abundant, that we are not separate- but interdependent. We can focus on the energetic exchange between people rather than on collecting the material- when we know the earth promises us abundance. It is in this spirit that we recognize our true power. Union (with each other and with the earth) makes us strong.

Dorian:
Music bears witness to our discordant cries and tells the stories of our reality. In the depths of our tears, as hostages of circumstances, music takes us beyond words, and reveals our deepest ambitions and traumas.

The story goes...A concerted and brutal war has been waged against the working people for a long time by a class-conscious business elite. They equate a democratic society with a capitalist economy, claiming that democracy is capitalism. This is a lie. Capitalism lays the foundation for an authoritarian system, and that system has failed.

We have a human obligation to combat injustice, whatever form it takes. This obligation is inseparable from the development of democracy and the transformation of the lives of the poor and working people as a whole: the dismantling of white supremacy, male supremacy, transphobia and homophobia, the dominance of power and classes, and any other form of oppression.

This piece is not only a call for action, but a call for solutions. Through empirical and evidence-based research, deep nurturing and spiritual contemplation, philosophical concepts being explored, and authentic artistic creativity, we aim to create a meaningful change against this white supremacist capitalist framework. Music has always been an essential part of political movements. Making music is the making of a connection between the physical and the metaphysical, creating a cohesive whole. Like music, politics is the shifting between conflict and harmony to find an equilibrium. Cooperation and mutual aid forms the foundation of the democratic process, which aims to find common ground and solutions to social challenges.

A revolutionary unification of the working class can bring the end of tyranny, the birth of true democracy, and the dawn of human transcendence. We must unite now, for we are in a very real war.
