Obsessions, repetitive behaviour and routines are frequently important and meaningful to many people, helping them manage anxiety and cope with the uncertainties of daily life. Throughout the last 3 years repetition is been my main topic of exploration, recently I have introduced popular culture into my practise as it is heavily influenced by mass media which in turn is a huge influence on us. Just like nursery rhymes, simple repetition can have a powerful impact on learning, however it is a psychological fact that things grow to be less novel, fabulous, gruesome, eye-catching when you see them every single day. Does the same apply to sound? ‘Ignorance is Bliss’ is a sound piece that is activated by pulling open the drawers, each drawer consists of a different sound which has been appropriated from the mass media, chances are you’ve heard it before.
