  • Duration: 60 min
  • "will it be better if we talked about this?” is a 30-minute soundscape/sound text work exploring the interplay between sound field recordings, spoken word, and ambient textures. Inspired by the intricate dynamics of the creative process, the piece delves into the notion of artists engaging in a continuous dialogue with their work.
    At its core, the composition reflects on the creative journey, highlighting my deep connection to my artistic process. By weaving together sound and spoken word elements, it offers listeners a glimpse into the internal dialogue that accompanies the act of artistic creation.
    For me, making art transcends mere technicality; it becomes a spiritual and meditative endeavour. Throughout the composition, there is a palpable sense of the artist communing with their work, as if engaged in a dynamic exchange of ideas and emotions.
    As the piece unfolds, listeners are invited to immerse themselves in this intricate dance between creator and creation. Each sonic layer unfolds organically, guided by the subtle nuances of the artist's inner dialogue. It is a journey of discovery as the composition gradually reveals its depths and complexities.
    Ultimately, "would it be better if we talked about this?" is a testament to the transformative power of artistic expression. Its immersive soundscape and introspective narrative invites listeners to contemplate the profound connections between art, creativity, and the human experience.
