For Those Who Died Trying
Bee Pranom from Protection International, Frank Horvat and Luke Duggleby are on Canadian Radio CIUT 89.5 FM on Friday 3 August at 11:30 am Toronto time, to talk about Mivos Quartet‘s world premiere concert For Those Who Died Trying, taking place on Monday 6 August at 5:00 pm in the Gathering Hall Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto, Canada.
Listen to the interview here: https://soundcloud.com/green-majority/environmental-justice-and-the-problem-of-compromise-618 at 29:20.
Mivos Quartet will be playing Frank Horvat’s compositions inspired by the homonymous photo exhibition by British photographer Luke Duggleby.
“This music is not intended to be purely melancholic but have a tinge of defiance so the memory of these heroes lives on and will hopefully spur listeners to find their inner activist and fight for what they feel is important in this world”
Frank Horvat, composer
For Those Who Died Trying presents photographs of 37 murdered or abducted human rights defenders in Thailand by placing a portrait of the victim (following a Buddhist tradition), when possible at the exact place where they were murdered or went missing. It looks to remember those who died defending human rights and protecting the environment and to help make it harder for the perpetrators to remain under the radar and continue this cycle of violence.
