"Embodied Cinema" is the binaural version of a piece originally composed for the event "Art In Flux: Levitations" and premiered at the Central St Martins (London) on a 8.2 sound system for a blindfolded audience.

The piece explores two things:

- The heightening of interoception and proprioception, the awareness of the inner and physical state of one's own body.
- The ability for sounds to produce internal cinematic experiences carrying strong personal meaning.

The composition is based on the psychoacoustic illusion of beating, otoacoustic emissions (the ability of ear canals to respond with sound to particular frequencies, as if they were loudspeakers) and the body's resonance to low frequencies.

All of these phenomena are best experienced on a 3D sound system. This particular version has been decoded in Binaural, giving the impression of a tridimensional sound field when listened to via headphones - listening to the piece in this way, with closed eyes, offers the opportunity for an aural cinematic experience to happen.

I invite you to enter your personal cinema and be entertained by the script of your own subconscious.
