This Week in Posivibes: Interrogating Dementia


The Caretaker’s Leyland Kirby will be chronicling through music the changes wrought by dementia on his own newly diagnosed mind. Kirby released a statement outlining the project:

The series aims to enlighten our understanding of dementia by breaking it down into a series of stages that provide a haunting guide to its progression, deterioration, and disintegration and the way that people experience it according to a range of impending factors.

It’s an ambitious, frightening, and generous project in six volumes, to be released through March of 2019. The first volume, Everywhere at the End of Time, is available now. Listen to the album’s first track, “It’s Just a Burning Memory,” after the jump.
