about

Cassette Tape Loop and Digital Effects

'Let me tell you' is a mediation on the repetitive thought patterns that lead to mental health issues such as anxiety and suicide. It is based around the opening notes of Han Abrahamsen's orchestral work 'Let me tell you', which is based on the experimental novel 'Let me tell you' by Paul Griffiths, which is, in turn, based around the words that Ophelia speaks in the Shakespeare play 'Hamlet'. This looping, corecursive lineage of references is used a way of representing the descent into maladaptive forms of thought.

Released as part of Catalyst Audio Tracks 001 (Catalyst Arts, Belfast). Premiered at the Sonic Arts Research Centre's Sonic Lab on 17 August 2018.
