Just 70 miles away from the nuclear disaster, the Gomel region is where the Soviet government used artillery shells filled with silver iodide to make rain clouds that would “wash out” radioactive particles which were drifting towards densely populated cities. Witnesses say that that day in 1986 they saw black rain falling from the sky. The nuclear fallout is said to have caused an 80% increase in disabled births here, and to this day huge areas around Gomel remain uninhabitable. To commemorate this tragedy, musicians are called to reimagine sounds and moods from those days in Gomel, and translate them into sounds.
Love Without Violins - *Keep coming back to this song. * I like the vibe up until the key change, then I find myself kinda intrigued by Brian Eno's lyrics.
