< Back to All Squares

"My Sound Square is meant to depict a morning or daily routine. The sounds heard (pill bottle, drawer, sink, traffic, oven) are all intended to resonate with the feeling of a rigid and probably stressful schedule. The resilience part comes out of the combination of these sounds coming together to form a groove over which a cello and scattered sighs of boredom or frustration turn the routine into a piece of music. The idea here is that there can be more in the repetition to any person's routine than just monotonous actions. When I have felt this way in the past, I have turned to music. The audio ends with the music lingering past the sound effects and a peaceful deep breathe."
