Baby Luca Yupanqui is about to release her debut MIDI soundtrack, but she won’t remember for sure when she recorded it.
Her parents, musicians Elizabeth Hart and Iván Diaz Mathé, used the technology to turn Yupanqui motions in the womb into sound.
While the idea of an album that Jenin records in his mother’s womb is new, using vital data to write music is a concept that has been around for some time.
MIDI is a technical standard describing the communications protocol, digital interface, and electrical conductors that connect a variety of electronic musical instruments, computers, and related audio devices to play, edit, and record music.
Sacred Bones Records, which also includes (David Lynch) David Lynch and (John Carpenter) John Carpenter on the list of artists, is supposed to release the album called Sounds of the Unborn In April.
Hart and Matthe captured the data with a sonication device Sonification It measures the electrical activity across the skin or the ever-changing electrical properties of the skin.
They sent the information to an electronic musical instrument that generated acoustic signals and used it to create the Sounds Of The Unborn album.
The same type of device has been used in the past to read MIDI data from plants and other organic matter.
The couple recorded Yupanqui’s movements over the course of five hours. While processing and editing the results, they did not want to tamper with the original data too much to allow the unborn baby’s message to exist in its initial form.
The music video below provides a preview of what’s on the sound album of a fetus in its mother’s womb.
The music within the album expresses life in its cosmic state, as well as an expression of a spirit that has not yet seen the light of day and has not taken a single breath of air, a message that comes from a different world.
To help promote the album Sounds Of The Unborn, Sacred Bones Records is selling the same version of the MIDI Bio-sonication device used on the album for $ 200 apiece.
