Diluvial takes as its starting theme the rising sea levels that preoccupy people living close to water. The piece plays on the dynamics between creation myths, flood geology and the concept of global warming. Deluge is its central metaphor. The final recorded sound tracks stand as a more diverse image of the human trajectory.
