Fireworks Kaleidoscope - YouTube video by Louise Page


I created and filmed this video with the intention of relating to music therapy, combined with a visual relaxation (and enjoyment) component. The idea, when viewing the video, is to imagine you may be looking through a kind of door/key hole into another dimension. This hopefully elicits a feeling of overall peace, tranquility and a momentary 'escape' from anxieties, stressors and so on. I also invisage that this video may assist in calming 'behaviour', even momentarily. This video was not designed with hypnosis in mind - not my area of expertise :) - just a relaxing auditory and visual experience. I have 'tested' its calming effect on a very small bunch of kids on the Spectrum (including mine) and they appear to instantly be mesmerized by the video/music - to their enjoyment. See what you think and let me know if you liked it (or not ;).  The music score is by the very talented UK artist Ricknanman.

Note: the video looks a tiny bit 'jerky' in spots. This is deliberate. It is supposed to represent 'yourself' looking through the door/keyhole, with natural body/eye movement and blinking in a couple of places.
