Visual Soundscape

This piece is a visual soundscape. It represents the thoughts and pains that go through the prisoner’s head while stuck in solitary confinement. The patient suffers from many mental illnesses. The eyes represent paranoia; the shots of gravestones and religious symbols represent the patient questioning their life, what they have done in the past and where they are going in the future. The shots of the prison show claustrophobia and a feeling of being trapped. The images of flowers represent hallucinations, the shots of the landscape represent a want to be free and in the open world. The shots of the broken glass and windows are the prisoner’s escape plan.  The chain and crow sounds are sounds from the prison. The voices and laugher are sounds that are in the prisoner’s head; they don’t know whether they are real or not. The church bells and bible represent repent and sorrow. The background sounds represent madness building in the prisoner’s head. It builds as they are going crazy and softens as they start to hallucinate.
