Turning Within: Interlacing Jungian Psychology with the Creative Process to Heal Transgenerational Trauma
Turning Within is a project that explores the idea of interlacing Jungian psychology with the creative process. The suite of music utilized tools such as Active Imagination, Word Association, analysis of archetypes, and symbols to confront and process Trans-Generational Trauma within the Collective Unconscious. The musical element incorporated was tetrachord theory taught by The Artistic Director of Berklee Global Jazz Institute, Danilo Perez. The outcome of incorporating Jungian psychology with composition includes creating a sonic art piece that integrates visual and expressive art forms such as graphic scores, voice acting, and sound design. The intention is to create an immersive aural experience that is therapeutic for the composer and the audience and leads the composer towards a path to individuation within their personal and creative life. With further study and research, the goal is to create a technique to share with other creatives seeking personal and artistic growth.
