Fear and anxiety distorted my reality.
I was constantly in my head, overthinking every situation.
By surrendering into fear and letting go of control I started exploring…
Composing music brought me back to my body and therefore here and now.
By letting the creative part of my brain take over I could compose music with ease.
Psychosis is a serious mental disorder where the person has lost touch to "reality". During a psychotic episode, a person may experience symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, persecution ideas and mood swings.
A psychosis can come suddenly or it can creep in.
I have gathered inspiration from various mental disorders and have tried to convey some of them as best I can through the use of different musical compositional techniques.
The goal with the project was to open up for discussion about the topic, defuse and create understanding.
