A Surrogate Hospital
Jenn Ackerman - Trapped: Mental Illness in America's Prisons (2007)
While in Arizona, I thought I'd post a local band.. oh and on the state of our care for our mentally ill. When the economy turns south and brings institutional budgets along, precedents suggest the most vulnerable become the most undesireable expenses. I'm not sure when it became acceptable for "treatment" to be synonymous with "imprisonment", but I'm sure the definition of recovery will be impacted as a result. Michael Wasmund's compositions sound like this intersection of cold concrete and quality of life.
