The Pathetics move like puppets with motivations that elude us, passing from joy to despair, from fear to serenity, from aggression to desolation, abruptly, with no apparent motives other than internal ones made manifest by the music. They are driven by unconscious inner drives that determine dynamics, facts and destinies. Everything changes quickly and everything repeats itself in a kind of carousel without beginning or end. This is a work about human nature. We are “The Pathetics”.
