In recent years, people’s relationship with politics can only be described by one word – distrust. It is understandable given scandals after scandals highlighting that there are problems in politics – both on a systematic level and individual level. On the other hand, even the best politicians who have the intention to work for the people, cannot perform due to the increased pressures from the 24-hour media cycle and social media.
The intensed scrutiny may be a useful to discover systematic injustice, scandals and the incompetent politician, but it also prevent politicians to actually do the work they are elected to do – govern and make good decisions. Sound decisions require time to digest complex information, when politicians are constantly asked to respond to the news of the day, there is little time for deep thinking and planning for the nation.
The purpose of this sound blog is to utilise the power of sound to change our relationships with political incidents.
Whilst in my experience, sound can help change situations on an individual level, you can find out more about it here. How it works on a systematic and global level I am still experimenting with. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
