Emotion through sound

So this assignment was to create emotion through sound. The emotions I chose to create were stress and anxiety. When looking into “soundscapes” I noticed that most people attempted to create a scene that would evoke powerful emotion. I wanted to create a scene of loneliness in a way that felt inescapable such as being the last person on earth, or being the only person trapped in a space station or submarine. I used a combination of vocal samples, audio clips and custom synthesizers all with heavy amounts of distortion including time stretching and pitch modulation to create this sound scene.
