“To χέρι που παίρνει” lyrics: Giannis G.
The health coup of 2020 has imposed a series of unprecedented conditions: the mutation of human rights into privileges; the extension of digital surveillance on every facet of life; the transformation of the body from the ultimate property of the individual into a problematic biological construct that must be opened wide to state and biotechnological interventions. The initial concern that the new paradigm that was striving to be imposed was inspired by dystopian science fiction scenarios was soon transformed into the horror of the realization that the actual instruction manual of our time is 1984.
It was during this bleak three-year period of confinement, mandates and the establishment of a permanent state of emergency, that this album was recorded.
