REwind is a Cantata for voice, tape and testimony. An on-going project that works with archival recordered audio-testimonies from South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission which are interwoven with protest songs and African Hymns. It was commissioned by the Celebrate Brooklyn Festival in 2007 and has been performed live in South Africa and in the United States.
Philip Miller, South African composer living in Johannesburg, has always been studying and analyzing the different South African traditions and musical repertories, coexisting and evolving in the dynamic cultural situation of his city, using in his compositions fragments, re-elaborations and quotations coming from different traditional music styles. He has worked directly with many soloists coming from Zulu, Nama, Sotho and Xhosa cultures.
