The music on this album originates in the interactive sound installation The Body Imitates the Landscape by artist Adi Hollander: she designed a collection of ergonomic objects that are meant to transform music into vibrations felt through the entire body. Hollander was inspired by the Japanese book Karada by Michitaro Tada about the ‘school of the body’. Hollander and Claudio F. Baroni made a live version of the installation where Baroni’s music, performed by Maze, was experienced live by the public. As it was channeled through the objects, the public could at once hear the music in the space and feel it in their bodies.
This album features 11 pieces, each, as in the book Karada, dedicated to a part of the body. Baroni has written those 11 pieces for the Ensemble Maze around recorded whispered voices. This is Baroni’s third collaboration with Unsounds. It comes with liner notes by Reinaldo Laddaga (a important guest on Unsounds with Things That A Mutant Needs To Know and The Men From Russia).
