This piece is an interpretive auditory experience in exploring the human body as a symphonic masterpiece. Depicted bodily experiences are hyperreal- all of it is real, yet none of it is real. They are direct translations of physiological function into sound using only audio sourced from what I have managed to salvage on the web. Individual clips and recording I’ve collected from the ends of the virtual world are compiled a digital human presence. In essence, each experience is a remix, just as the entire production of the piece is, from the coding, research, and audio, all tailored and conformed into something entirely new. The overall effect is individually synthetic, yet wholly organic. Other realms of exploration- at what point does sound become music? In this, I argue that the human body too, is a work of art. How does content displacement affect its perception? This I explore by taking the function of a sound and placing it within different context.
