The Truth and Reconciliation Commission was an extraordinary moment in South Africa’s history. A struggle to forgive, where 21,000 victims told their stories and 7,000 perpetrators confessed their crimes. To mark its 10th anniversary, South African composer Philip Miller used ‘shards’ from recorded testimonies – fragments of exhalations, intonations, moans, murmurs, gasps – to compose Rewind: A Cantata for Voice, Tape and Testimony. The title comes from the testimony of Mrs. Miya at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission who learned of the death of her son on television and who prayed, « Oh no Lord! I wish the news could rewind. » Making use of original news footage, TRC testimony and excerpts from the cantata itself, Rewind is a tremendous artistic achievement.
