Death Must Die is a sound piece that begins before the rising of the sun and reproduces the cycle of a day in the sacred Indian city of Varanasi, where death is everywhere, bathed in light. It is here that Hindus come to die and burn their dead. It is here, on the river’s edges, that the wrath and the grace of Shiva are expressed. Intoxicating as death itself, it is a hammering song of the dead, playing until one is transfixed, and it is the murmuring of the Ganges… the power of silence.
