Augmented ASMR Audio Play for One Voice and Seven Spirits by Claire Tolan.
A buzzing clatter fills the shimmering summer heat. Sitting in the green of the park, they murmur of the past, present and future. The cicadas of this audio play are gossipers and voyeurs. They observe the world and speculate about the nature of things. They use ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) to beguile and relax us, reminding us that there are realities beyond the human one. They promote awareness of our environment, our human and non-human companions*, and ourselves.
This recording was taken in August 2021 in Kongreßpark Vienna by Maximilian Pramatarov.
