Description: In 1989, we celebrated the Bicentenary of the Great French Revolution. On this occasion, I composed a radio play "Mon 1989". It was a collage of electroacoustic music and documents that I recited myself. After the "little German revolution", the idea came to me, by association, to compose the current correspondent: "Mein 1989", using my voice and this time, documents recorded on magnetic tape. It is a look back on our destiny which, in East Germany, begins with the terrible legacy of Nazism. At the beginning of the play, we listen to a quote from Anaximander: "This place where things take their origin, to this place where they must also be damaged because they have to pay for them. injustice...." Thus the play refers to the difficulties of saying the word "Liberty".
