One of two companion pieces to my rework of Christopher Nolan's film Insomnia; this album takes the full audio of Erik Skjoldbaerg's original 1997 film and transforms it into a blistering onslaught of HNW severity. Long a favorite film of mine since I first saw it back in 1998, Skjoldbaerg's Insomnia is a psychologically dense but physically empty study of the meeting palce between authority and cruelty, the enjoyment of punishment, the allure of psychopathy. It is an extremely troubling and dark film, one that illuminates humankind's more provocative obsessional fantasies and propensity for brutal violence.
The rework of the audio of this first version heads in that direction: all rage, all anger, with a few moments of blurry respite and disorientation. This is very hopefully an audio illustration of seething, brooding rage and self-doubt.
