Alone Together (hospital suites) Norah Lorway

Alone Together (part 2) is a part of a set of recently composed pieces exploring the effects of the internet culture on our lives. The set takes its name from the book Alone Together (2011) by MIT professor Sherry Tuckle. The book discuses the effects of a fast growing internet culture on our lives, making claims that the various technological gadgets which have supposedly brought us closer together, have begun to draw us even further apart. Alone Together (part 2) takes the listener through the darker side of these connections, creating intricate textures, streams of ambience, a feeling of constant fluctuation, and a sense of anxiety throughout.
