This is the Week Five Module for JRNL102.
In “A Dark Room” there are several positives that arise from the work. Use of ambient sounds are very immersing and allow the listener to imagine the place that is being described. As the place is a mental place (the dark room being a symbol of depression) the talent is vital to the piece and the backstory of the family and their struggle with depression allows for an emotional connection to the work. However, the ambient sound at times overshadows the talent and there are spots of poor quality which lowers the standard of the work overall. There is also a rather sudden ending to the work, which does not help the narrative arc it intended to tell.
