Tolerance and Intolerance: A Binary Opposition in Times of Strife
During the days of rising tension, in the forms of social unrest, revolutions, and wars, the ideas of tolerance and intolerance stand as a binary opposition, shaping the course of history. It may be impossible to actively promote peace, or, at times, propose a call for unity and resistance against violence and prejudice without considering this binary opposition in the center.

Tolerance: The Anthem of Unity
Release Date: November 3rd, 2023.

Tolerance emerges as a symbol of unity and understanding during the times of upheaval–either as ‘an ability or willingness to tolerate the existence of opinions or behaviors that one may dislike to disagree with’ or ‘a capacity to endure continued subjection to something without adverse reactions’. Is the anthem of unity, that makes possible the dialogue over disagreement while fostering empathy in divisions, similar to a melody in a world of cacophony? Tolerance also becomes the outcry of the oppressed, where a society with diverse voices harmonizes for justice, or turns into a hand of solidarity, during the darkest hours of wars.

This set of sounds echoes the spirit of humanity, resonating with sounds of acceptance and compassion, and strives to reflect upon the strength and resilience in harmony against the blind agents of intolerance. This compilation was produced during the last weeks of summer 2023 and is now being released simultaneously with the next compilation which is considered for the autumn. The album will be on digital pre-order stage on October 16th on Bandcamp, and it will be released on November 3rd on the most online music distribution platforms.
