Thoughts on the bus to Nowhere by Oseremen Irete
This soundscape is born out of my everyday documentation, trying to survive a personal crisis wrapped inside a global one. As the world isolated together, I felt like a passenger on a journey I did not choose. The bus is a vehicle to explore my individual experience within this collective journey. Weaving together creative scraps of journal entries, notes app poems, and voice notes, it is a continuation of my interest in personal storytelling as a way to understand my thoughts, feelings, and experiences while expanding my mostly digital practice into a physical space.
