“Hmm, I wonder ?”- Poem and Short Film
An absurd poem looking at the principles of perspective through spoken language and film . This poem flips reality on its head or tails. Yet , what is reality when each of us could have a different definition for a word or a different story for a one situation. Look at it this way or that way, the facts remain the same. This is a poem made by me on the day that I made it.
“OST” – Original Music
‘OST’ is inspired by ambient music and film/TV soundtracks. The tracks aim to create a sense of space for the listener to place themselves within, using a mixture of serene and unsettling soundscapes. Through this, the listener could use the soundscapes as their own Original Soundtrack (or OST, for short) to a story of their own imagining.

Nu World – Music and Visuals
This collection of sounds painting a theoretical picture for a new way of life.The soundtrack to a peaceful revolution. I made this music with the intention of meditating along. Depicting and manifesting a more connected world. The use of ambient sounds grounds this in reality and reminds the listener to be mindful. The cover art are pictures taken by myself and are an attempt to capture the beauty already present around us.
The second part is a continuation of this… I started with the idea of adding vocals and poetry to the music. During this time I had to deal with difficulties in consistent technology, and outside pressures. The music reflects this as it asks questions of the listening world. The lyrics were born out of the more unknown feeling that I have had this last month. It still paints some hope, though is cautious. It remembers that the new world is just as daunting as exciting. It is a project of duality, and a lone agent commandeering himself..

BINA, Sabrina Obiago Music is Therapy – music
My project is focusing on the healing and cathartic qualities which I believe music has. I have
used my quarantine commission to hone my guitar-playing skills and create a piece which is
inspired by trying to process an experience which previously left me in emotional turmoil. I hope that through telling this story, people will be able to resonate with some aspects of the song. The song is called “Just Breathe” and although the original version of this song was produced by an American producer called thxnkq, I will be making a solo version entirely produced, written, recorded and mixed by me. It will be released under my artist name, BINA.
