ONE TRACK EXPERIENCE
Experience Design, Projection Mapping, Installation
How can you represent the multitude of layers expressed in music?
ONE TRACK EXPERIENCE is a visual installation representing the unreleased music track "Breakaway" by Theo Adler. The installation was produced in collaboration with the West-London artist to represent his vision for the song which he describes as "wanting to experience the feeling of departure".
The installation tries to capture these feelings visually; the loneliness, angst and disorientation experienced in the city. The song was a rough draft at the start of the collaboration; it developed alongside the visual experience, influencing the songwriting and instrumentals of the track.
Full version created on Millumin (2017).
Early prototypes of possible installations...
The cube model was selected for its simplicity, positioning the user as a spectator. The blocks refer to the urban setting it was then adapted for exhibition at university.

Song lyrics and Theo's description of the song
“Never thought I’d be here in
All these places that you put me in
I’m a bit late but I’m hurriying
So you can really love my way
And she can really look away
And I know that you’ve been here
And heard all about it
And I know that I’ve been there too
So its true
I’ve always been waiting for
And here we go again
From foreign lands they send
Litttle tune to keep me occupied
So lets start again...
And I know I can’t turn back
I know I gotta catch it
I know I gotta catch it so I can’t slow down my dear
So lets start again
Race to the scene
Chasing city light oh she takes me away
And she goes to my head
Lost in this world of words and feelings”
