In May 2018, Scott Hutchison, lead singer of Frightened Rabbit, sadly completed suicide. Through his lyrics Scott Hutchison bared his soul. He created poetry from his inner most darkest thoughts and this resinated with so many people. Because of this his tragic death was met with an outpouring of love and admiration as well as gratitude for all that he had done through the power of his music.
For myself, and so many other people, his music has helped me through my darkest days and made me feel less isolated in my struggles with my own mental health.
This generative sound piece is my tribute to Scott Hutchison. Using Processing sound reactive visuals, these visuals being lines of text containing heartfelt tributes found online, form the waveform of three of my favourite Frightened Rabbit songs.
