Fire In My Mouth - First ever orchestra project written for The Working Class

Posted by I0TA - 1 month ago


Today, March 25, is the 108th anniversary of Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire that murdered 147 garment workers during a strike, mostly who were Jewish, Slavic and Italian immigrants from Prussia. The massacre was caused by the pigs Max Blanck and Isaac Harris, who locked the fire exit doors and set the building on fire to suppress the strike. The Triangle Fire was one of the very long list of struggle for the working class. Rest in power.


Fire in my mouth is an oratorio written by Julia Wolfe. Arguably it's the first-ever mainstream orchestra project that finally representing the working class. The classical scene is known for its extreme toxic reactionary with privileged cum bags, with exception like John Cage, but finally in times it opened to the proletariat.

The most sad fact is that things like this are still happening. No one's learning, nobody cares, people just don't want to live an honest life...

Many unfortunately are aware of these things, however they choose to tune out of the world around them and carry on with survival, hoping that shit like this would never happen to them. I will never blame the working class for this ignorance, they are conditioned by survival to think and act such way.

Cool I guess
