~: Short Synopsis :~

 

After spending four months in isolation, trying to get back into a post-COVID world has been a difficult uphill battle. This is a three part series of letters and diary entries centred around three different locations, their soundscapes and how they all link to one overarching story.

 

~: Episode One :~

~: GHOSTS :~

 

Ghosts will be the first episode out of three, exploring the National Trust site’s history and reputation for being haunted and how XYZ can’t shake off her own metaphorical ghosts. This episode will be produced as a love letter, exploring XYZ’s thoughts and feelings and her finally being able to move on.

 

~: Episode Two :~

~: TIME :~

 

Time will be the second episode, exploring the Royal Observatory in Greenwich recounting the sites history and the very birthplace of time itself. While XYZ is exploring the grounds, she will explore how time is often the best therapy and how now, with a silenced mind, she can focus her time better. This episode will be produced as an audio diary entry.

 

~: Episode Three :~

~: FREEDOM :~

 

Freedom will be the final episode, concluding the trilogy and the underlying story that’s been going on throughout the other episodes. The use of Walthamstow Wetlands as a backdrop for this episode will create a feeling of openness and freedom and that XYZ has gotten better and through the darkness. This episode will be produced as a love letter.
