'Everywhere at the end of time' is a new and finite
series exploring dementia, its advance and its totality.
Each stage will reveal new points of progression,
loss and disintegration. Progressively falling further
and further towards the abyss of complete memory
loss and nothingness.
Viewing dementia as a series of stages can be
a useful way to understand the illness, but it is
important to realise that this only provides a rough
guide to the progress of the condition.
Drawing on a recorded history of 20 years of
recollected memories this is one final journey
and study into recreating the progression of
dementia through sound.
Stage 1 - September 2016 (A+B)
Here we experience the first signs of memory loss.
This stage is most like a beautiful daydream.
The glory of old age and recollection.
The last of the great days.
Stage 2 - April 2017 (C+D)
The second stage is the self realisation and awareness that
something is wrong with a refusal to accept that.
More effort is made to remember so memories can be more long form
with a little more deterioration in quality.
The overall personal mood is generally lower.
Stage 3 - Released in September 2017 (E+F)
Here we are presented with some of the last coherent memories before
confusion fully rolls in and the grey mists form and fade away.
Finest moments have been remembered, the musical flow in places
is more confused and tangled. As we progress some singular memories
become more disturbed, isolated, broken and distant.
These are the last embers of awareness before we enter the
post awareness stages.
Stage 4 - April 2018 (G+H+I+J)
Post-Awareness Stage 4 is where serenity and the ability to recall singular memories gives way to confusions and horror. It's the beginning of an eventual process where all memories begin to become more fluid through entanglements, repetition and rupture.
Stage 5 - Released in September 2018
Stage 6 - Released in March 2019
