"The album Infantry by composers/performers Meira Asher & Guy Harries dives headlong into the harsh reality of a child in an adult's world. It is an intimate document exploring manipulation, militarist education and war. The mood shifts rapidly from the violent and tragic to the comic and grotesque, reflecting the ambiguous nature of the subject. The sound material draws from a wide scope of sources: Extensive use of text and voice, recorded sounds of children in their natural or unnatural surroundings, acoustic instruments and a variety of the latest electronic techniques in the field of synthesis and sound processing. The album combines different genres; heavy beats, soundscape narratives, noise and theatrical elements merge into one. Both text and sound refer to different places, ranging from the Middle East (where Meira Asher & Guy Harries grew up) and Africa to Europe. Infantry being a painful and intense listening experience as it is, cannot amount to the harshness of the reality it reflects. It will not leave you indifferent."
