Write a short summary of what happens in the radio or audio work.

An intriguing and eye-catching Trojan horse. Fascinating us with its beauty while slowly raising the hairs at the back of our neck as we realise with sorrow that this breathtaking performance is taking place at a grave. Recomposed into a requiem and performed by the underwater musicians Between Music, Beethoven's "Ode to Joy", the European Anthem, was played at the grave of thousands who drowned seeking help – at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea.

Translation. Provide a full English translation of any audio.

Ode to Joy Joy, beautiful spark of Divinity [or: of gods], Daughter of Elysium, We enter, drunk with fire, Heavenly one, thy sanctuary! Thy magic binds again What custom strictly divided;* All people become brothers,* Where thy gentle wing abides. Whoever has succeeded in the great attempt, To be a friend's friend, Whoever has won a lovely woman, Add his to the jubilation! Yes, and also whoever has just one soul To call his own in this world! And he who never managed it should slink Weeping from this union! All creatures drink of joy At nature's breasts. All the Just, all the Evil Follow her trail of roses. Kisses she gave us and grapevines, A friend, proven in death. Ecstasy was given to the worm And the cherub stands before God. Gladly, as His suns fly through the heavens' grand plan Go on, brothers, your way, Joyful, like a hero to victory. Be embraced, Millions! This kiss to all the world! Brothers, above the starry canopy There must dwell a loving Father. Are you collapsing, millions? Do you sense the creator, world? Seek him above the starry canopy! Above stars must He dwell.

Please tell us about the social behaviour that inspired the work

In recent years, Europe's frontpages were dominated by the refugee crisis. But with so much going on in 2020, it's no wonder we stopped paying attention. And yet, people are still drowning every day in the Mediterranean Sea. The current pandemic situation has left little room for the longstanding humanitarian catastrophe, so it has been ignored. Even the politicians who cared initially have started ignoring the drowning. Additionally, not only do private sea rescue missions lack any public support, the European governments actively undermine them. The challenge was to create a powerful reminder that brought the refugees' situation back into the public eye.
