When thinking about where i’m from in terms of sound, I found it incredibly difficult to get off the ground so to speak in what I wanted to do for this assessment. It’s hard to determine what resonates with you in terms of sounds other than noise. It wasn’t until a close family member was admitted to hospital not long ago that I decided what I wanted to do. ‘Taken For Granted’ is a sound piece based on how we can enjoy all of the things life has to offer, but still knowing that it can all go wrong. We’re all from happiness, this piece includes sounds of my dog playing, walking through nature, rainfall and the chitter chatter of friends in a public area. All whilst having the beeping of a hospital machine in the background. I hope everyone enjoys this piece!
For this piece, I drew inspiration from a few sources:
