K.T.Reeder - System Broken
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#78], Ivory Coast, 2016
"System Broken is a work about the fact that the entire system within which we live is broken. Capitalism is broken, the music industry is broken, human rights are broken. Our society has massive inequality and deprivation and doesn't work properly. Musical genres like Jazz are dominated by rich private school educated old-boys. The establishment has corrupted all musical forms. Our lives are colonized by the state, we are told what to think and what not to think. We are fed lies by the government. We are made to feel that we are worthless and free thought is tightly controlled. We are all terrorists if we have opinions. We are radicalized if we criticize politicians. We are all prisoners of the state, capitalism, colonial legacies, the aristocracy and power systems which the media promote through relentless propaganda. We starve if the rich wants us to. We suffer if the rich want us to. We die if the rich want us to. There is nothing we can do about it."
