Product Description

Leyland Kirby's final project as The Caretaker, a fictional first-person account of life with early-onset dementia. A six-part series exploring dementia, its advance and its totality, released semianually from 2016 to 2019.

Taken from notes accompanying the release of Stage 4:
Each stage will reveal new points of progression, loss and disintegration. Progressively falling further and further towards the abyss of complete memory loss and nothingness. Viewing dementia as a series of stages can be a useful way to understand the illness, but it is important to realise that this only provides a rough guide to the progress of the condition. Drawing on a recorded history of 20 years of recollected memories this is one final journey and study into recreating the progression of dementia through sound.

Stage 1 - September 2016 (A+B)
Here we experience the first signs of memory loss.
This stage is most like a beautiful daydream.
The glory of old age and recollection.
The last of the great days.

Stage 2 - Released in March 2017 (C+D)
The second stage is the self realisation and awareness that something is wrong with a refusal to accept that.
More effort is made to remember so memories can be more long form with a little more deterioration in quality.
The overall personal mood is generally lower.

Stage 3 - Released in September 2017 (E+F)
Here we are presented with some of the last coherent memories before confusion fully rolls in and the grey mists form and fade away.
Finest moments have been remembered, the musical flow in places is more confused and tangled.
As we progress some singular memories become more disturbed, isolated, broken and distant.
These are the last embers of awareness before we enter the post awareness stages.

Stage 4 - Released in April 2018 (G+H+I+J)
Post-Awareness Stage 4 is where serenity and the ability to recall singular memories gives way to confusions and horror. It's the beginning of an eventual process where all memories begin to become more fluid through entanglements, repetition and rupture.

Stage 5 - Released in September 2018 (K+L+M+N)
Post-Awareness Stage 5 confusions and horror. More extreme entanglements, repetition and rupture can give way to calmer moments. The unfamiliar may sound and feel familiar. Time is often spent only in the moment leading to isolation.

Stage 6 - Released in March 2019 (O+P+Q+R)
Is without description.
