Body Music

Phenomenologies of Sonic Gesture

by Atau Tanaka
Goldsmiths Press / MIT Press

Body Music looks at visceral engagement of the body in musical performance, and thinks about how technological mediation can foster, or might break, forms of audience empathy.

The artist uses muscle sensors that respond to movement in the body to create his sonic pieces. The cover draws on the muscle layers, the movement of blood and the heightened emotion one experiences when playing or listening to music.
