Split is inspired by the 2019 Taiwanese television series “The World Between Us” that told about schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a psychiatric disease that that primarily affects the patient’s “thinking” and “perception” The composer wants to through this piece to express the various symptoms of patients at the time of onset, such as delusions, hallucinations, hallucinations, mental disorders, etc. What composers hope most is that all people in society can have a better understanding of schizophrenia. What we need is more empathy and support, not more misunderstandings, stigma and labels.
Split used the sound of matches and glass as the material. The burning and ignition of matches material represents the desire for survival and survival. The glass represents another sound that confronts the heart. The composer expects to use both sounds to portray the inner struggles and fantasies of schizophrenic patients.
In terms of sound technology, the composer used the sound of the matches for various modulations. The sound used medium and high frequency pad to show illusions of the patient, and the granular synthesis was used to figure out the symptoms of the schizophrenia.
