about

INMATES’ VOICES - Voix de Détenus, est une création musicale sur des textes de prisonniers.
Ces textes ont été écrits spécialement pour ce projet par des détenus condamnés à mort aux USA. Ils ont ensuite été sélectionnés par de jeunes compositeurs qui les ont mis en musique. Les chansons nées de cette collaboration sont interprétées par huit chanteurs romands.

Prêter voix à des prisonniers, c'est leur donner l'opportunité d'exister en dehors de leur cellule, c'est permettre à leurs mots de nous toucher.
Laissez-vous emporter par ces voix de prisonniers...

Track Name: Dead Man Walking
DEAD MAN WALKING
Text Ronald W. Clark, Florida I Music Dominique TIlle

For mistakes can be made
And the ultimate price paid
For when an innocent life is lost
That is surely the ultimate cost
And we can never, never be sure
If we’re killing the guilty or just the poor.

Dead man walking
That’s why I´m talking
Trying to educate
to eliminate the hate
and rid so many men
Of a terrible fate
Track Name: Enjoy Life
ENJOY LIFE
Text Roy Swafford, Florida I Music Sarah Lancman

Enjoy life, you never know
what’s around the corner or down the road
Enjoy life, for none of us
knows what tomorrow may bring
There are so many things that I wish that I would have done
And unfortunately that time has passed for me forever
So please don’t let this happen to you
Enjoy life and take advantage of everyday,
and everything you want to do.
Track Name: I Know Loneliness
Loneliness
Text Ronald W. Clark, Florida I Music Constance Jaermann

I know loneliness
like most will never know
I know loneliness
like most will never feel
I know loneliness
a feeling that's so surreal
I know loneliness
like no one should ever know
I know loneliness
I know it's feel
For I'm captivated by it
held to it's will
I know loneliness
I know it's self defiance
I know loneliness
I know it's deadly silence
Yes, I know loneliness
I know it all to well
For this loneliness
is my deep dark hell
Track Name: Seeds
SEEDS
Text Roy Swafford, Florida I Music Julien Mégroz

Children are the seeds of our future,
so plant love in their hearts
and water them with wisdom
and life's lessons, and especially love,
and as they grow give them the space to grow
and the respect they need
Track Name: Scheduled Executions

Track Name: Death Watch
DEATH WATCH
Text Richard Vasquez, Texas I Music Cyrill Greter

I am not giving up!
I am fighting until the end, until there is no room to fight.
I am hurting inside, it´s tearing me apart,
but I will not give up!
I am fighting until the end, until there is no room to fight.
All these years of suffering, I will not put to waste.
The pain I feel is real, I feel it everyday.
It bleeds inside of me, I shed tears for my loved ones.
I think of them and I hurt.
I hurt because they should not be feeling this way
because of me.
I am the one who got sentenced to death, not them!
But Love, the REAL love,
the UNCONDITIONAL love is what keeps us together!
If my loved ones want to hurt with me and die with me.
I will let them share this pain with me!
But I am not giving up.
I am fighting until the end, until there is no room to fight...
Track Name: Nothing Man Makes
NOTHING MAN MAKES
Text Spoon Jackson, California I Music Lukas Briner

Nothing man makes can
Parallel one blade of grass
Or one grain of sand

No matter if you split
The atom and discombobulate
Its structure and blow
Up mountains

Nothing man makes
Can parallel one flower,
One stream, one sun ray,
One moon glow

No matter how much
You strive to be God
Of this world, this planet

Looking back, you think
In time
Seeing stars born
Black holes grow
Rings around Saturn

Nothing man does man
Even make you God
Over the tiniest
Planet in the solar system
