‘When you’re sad, you need to
hear your sorrow structured into sound’

feel uncertain, that is uncomfortable.’
- Michaela Coel
WHY DO I
WHEN MY EGO
IS THE MAIN
How can I provoke my own alienation or dissociation as a tool in my artistic proces of making music and sound?
How would my music sound like if I let go of shame, expectations and 'rules'?
What will happen to my music if I focus more on an uncomfortable state or emotion?
How can I create an alternate but true story by enlarging certain aspects and characteristics of myself ?
I want to create a formula wherein I can go to extremes and surprise myself with my music and soundscapes. A way to get into a dissociated and psychedelic ‘flow state’, a state wherein I can't recognize myself anymore.
I want to do specific exercises to make myself feel uncomfortable.
A way so that I can try to let go of expectations and certain ‘rules’ in my head within making music. Hopefully I will make a lot of mistakes that I can transform into songs, in the sense of errors are key.

PRESENTATION / EXPERIMENT
Caught in a dream
Feeling distant memories
Vanish, but return
Too alienated to
Recognize who I am
did it make sense?
