The Quiet in the Land from CBC Radio's Ideas


The third program in Glenn Gould's Solitude Trilogy, which examines the lives of people living in isolation, in this instance, the Mennonite community at Red River, Manitoba. This is a complex montage that blends layers of ambient sound, music, and speech. The voices, which overlap one another, are people from the community who speak about the conflict between the Mennonite idea of separation from the world and the intrusion of modern society into their lives.
