A collection of the audible traces of dancing bodies (audio CD with booklet).
Dancing recomposes music by pulling the beat, the melody, and the force of sonic experience the body to playback in excited gesture and movement. Extending the rapture of dance, The Sonic Body is a collection of the audible traces of dancing bodies. The movements of individuals listening to sound and music are recorded to form acoustic identities, highlighting dance as a form of translation: a heated musicology found in the step. The Sonic Body is a work that aims for the physicality of sound, as a process of ingestion, intake, a listening hunger, and finally, embodied reaction, a sensual vitality refiguring bodily presence into an energetic micro-event.
