Whilst not explicitly about mental health per se … “Sometimes” explores those days :
when nothing seems to work -
when it’s best just to go back to bed -
when the expectation to conform to
the patterns of others’ views of your self
and your view of the self you want to inhabit …
simply refuse to cooperate …
those days when … just
fuck-it : I can’t do this anymore.
Bio: Working across a range of modalities, daz was a musician and sound engineer before becoming a surround-sound & sound-art facilitator and systems consultant. Software tools he has developed have featured in both ComputerMusic and MusicTech magazines (for which he’s also been a contributing author), and he was instrumental in developing the SoundSpiral 52-channel inflatable Surround-Sound and Arts venue for the London2012 Cultural Olympiad. As a visualist and performer he combines his musical aptitude with live-patching and video manipulation, and as an artist works regularly with photo and video, for which he often creates bespoke code and tooling. Currently resident artist with xchurch/ Slumgothic (Gainsborough) daz has taught as a visiting artist (live-art, visuals, technology) and presented to a variety of conferences in the sound-art & experimental music fields.
