A Broken Record
This Culminating Experience project is a collaboration with the Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, where people donate mundane objects from their previous relationships in order to make peace with the past and tell their story. ‘A Broken Record’ is an album of original of music and visual compositions inspired by the objects in the Museum’s collection. This album will take the form of an interactive, user-defined audio- visual experience where each listener chooses their own unique adventure through the album depending on their answers to a series of yes/no questions relating to their own experience of love and loss. Each answer presents the listener with a different digital audio-visual experience where they hear a song and view a lyric video featuring the object from which the song drew its inspiration. Listeners will only interact with the songs and stories that resemble previous relationships they have had, resulting in a personalised heartbreak soundtrack.
