Insomnia


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
tis Really just a sound collage of TV adds and loops and some Ezdrummer loops and a load of effects. I wanted to attempt to capture the chaos in the mind of somebody suffering with insomnia. It was inspired by a films I had the pleasure to work on called Lull by Katie Liston and After the Rain by Andrew Lynch during my time studying film making at St Johns Central College Cork.
My good friend Cormac Brenok may or may not have actually played live on this but I know I used loops and midis of him playing somewhere on this.

Spooky and disturbing..
I have never suffered from real insomnia,which I believe is more than just not being able to get the full "8 hours". I believe it has a knock on effect of problems trying to function during the day.This "tone poem" seemzs to express the nerve jangling stressed out state somebody might get into if suffering from said condition.Good one Florry....nice to hear from you again.


Cheers

I became
an insomniac due to a bunch of stressors and mostly I was unable to sleep for more than an hour or two and often went without sleep for up to two months. You really can't even think when this is going on and everything hurts. This is actually pleasant despite those otherworldly, even nightmarish clips, because of the pretty chiming. Thank you.

'tis really compelling
Mesmerizing. Normally, mesmerization is associated with sleep, not insomnia, but whatever. A fascinating trip through someone's mind. Much enjoyed.
