The BC Schizophrenia Society wanted to build a deeper understanding for those who cope with schizophrenia. We partnered with various musicians from different genres to create an immersive experience. Each audio track began as what a listener would traditionally expect, however, by adding in musical effects to alter the sound and overlaying intrusive voices, listener’s experienced what it’s like living with the mental condition firsthand.
