This is one of a set of 2 remixes based on the source files of the interview with Dr. Norman Foster in the context of the Music For Healing Project from 2015.
It’s obviously a difficult topic, and unlike the other companion remix, in this one, I’ve attempted to create an atmosphere of soothing and comfort (i.e not too dark and depressing).
And I’ve tried to blend Dr. Foster’s words with the music so that one can listen to it in two different ways:
In background listening mode, the spoken words are intended to blend in with the rhythmical backdrop, while music communicates a soothing ambiance.
When listening intently, it’s intended to be possible to make out the words of Dr. Foster, as he talks about the topic from various angles: scientific, from the affected person’s perspective, from the different caregivers perspectives and in the end his message that music can serve as a refuge of meaningful happiness.
A few more detailed technical notes and additional thoughts can be found here in the ”How I Did It”
