National Anthem, 2018
Sound description: Four stringed instruments (violin, viola, cello, and bass) play a harmonic rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Applause swells from a distant audience at the extension of the line “for the land of the free,” and crescendos upon completion of the piece. Applause transitions into a conversation between a male reporter and NFL player Colin Kaepernick.
Reporter: [Faintly] What would you like this, you know, to be the end game for you?
Kaepernick: [Faintly] no space, please. [Clearly, into a microphone] Um, I mean ultimately it’s to bring awareness and make people, you know, realize what’s really going on in this country. There are a lot of things that are going on that are unjust that a lot of people aren’t being held accountable for, and that’s something that needs to change. That’s something that, you know, this country stands for freedom, liberty, justice for all, and it’s not happening for all right now.
[The piece transitions into silence before looping]
