Programme Notes<br />

<strong>Le</strong> <strong>Temps</strong> <strong>est</strong> <strong>à</strong> <strong>la</strong> <strong>Pluie</strong> was commissioned by Musicians Against Nuclear<br />

Arms for the 1995 Greenpeace concert held in Wellington, New Zea<strong>la</strong>nd, to<br />

prot<strong>est</strong> against French nuclear t<strong>est</strong>ing and raise funds for Rainbow Warrior<br />

II.<br />

<strong>Le</strong> <strong>Temps</strong> <strong>est</strong> <strong>à</strong> <strong>la</strong> <strong>Pluie</strong> is a threnody to all life in the Pacific region that has<br />

fallen victim to radiation leaks from French nuclear t<strong>est</strong>ing on Polynesian<br />

atolls over the <strong>la</strong>st four decades. In several instances, nuclear contamination<br />

of the area occurred in the form of fallout and contaminated rain falling<br />

upon unsuspecting inhabitants, who are dependent on the rain for their<br />

water supply.<br />
