“LABYRINTH PSYCHOTICA is an artistic research project about the experience of psychosis. The project launches interactive platforms that transform the direct perceptions of the user into a simulation of psychosis. This allows one to experience, in a creative and engaged manner, how psychosis blends realities and perceptions.” – Jennifer Kanary
I have designed and composed a number of sound pieces for both parts of this project; ‘The Labyrinth’ itself and ‘The Wearable’. While the sound works for The Wearable were designed for more a intimate, headphone listening experience, The Labyrinth sound pieces were designed for parametric speakers which enables creative uses of sound positioning and directionality within a space using ultrasonic sound, thus considerably enhancing the overall in-your-head experience.
