Atrophy In The Key Of Dreaming Book is a realtime music-video work that investigates the sound of wisdom. It creates music from stored knowledge in the form of books, pages, words, shelves, libraries. The microscopic sounds of letters, words, pages and books swarm with gentle quietness through eerily quiet shelves, libraries and archive.
The work also explores the chasm between static, secure physical knowledge on one side, and the endless, restless torrent of digital information on the other: The swarms are haunted by ghosts of electric static.
The project was created and filmed in libraries in Rome, Italy, september 2017. It is currently in post-production, set for release late November 2017.
