Control – stories of epilepsy
+++ Warning: THIS AUDIO CONTAINS HIGH-PITCHED FREQUENCIES! If you suffer from musicogenic seizures, you may find this content disturbing. +++
Control is a sonic journey through stories of people living with epilepsy. The composition was created in collaboration with the multimedia project A Life Electric, from which few stories were chosen and re-interpreted.
The composition is an artistic exploration of the world that surrounds epilepsy, a world often made up of silence, indifference and fears, but also of pure energy, inexplicable phenomena, and still today enveloped in charm and mystery.
Dedicated to all those people who don’t have a voice.

In collaboration with Far Features Ltd:
A Life Electric is a multimedia documentary project exploring epilepsy experiences globally with the goal of bringing humankind’s most misunderstood brain condition out of the shadows through art and education.
The project draws upon a hybrid of multimedia techniques to connect people, communities and society to the “lives of epilepsy”.
We enter epilepsy through doorways of personal experiences via interviews, letters, free-writing, biographical filmmaking, documentary techniques, abstract photography, typographical design, sound design, audio storytelling, digital media, print books, magazines and exhibitions to create a multimedia project accessible to all.
The A Life Electric project is personal for writer-director Fraser Morton, which started in his notebook, inspired by the life of his older brother, Blair. Since beginning the project in 2018, Fraser has held more than 100 interviews in person and over the phone. Along with his partner Eszter Papp, the pair have also collected a series of portraits, which will be displayed in photo exhibitions. The A Life Electric feature film is in development and book also coming soon in 2020. Please write to Fraser about book enquiries here: email@example.com
