Infinite Greyscale presents a new long-form composition by Holly Herndon. "Body Sound" was composed by Herndon, in collaboration with choreographer and dancer Cuauhtemoc Peranda, and performed at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics. In real time, Herndon restructured the sounds of the dancer's body to make an arrangement that is simultaneously rhythmic, fragmented, and incredibly physical. A dragged heel squeaks, his rolling torso sends tumbling shockwaves through the speakers, and each stomp of a foot is a blast of sub-bass. Herndon builds on this source material, taking time to bend the sounds into an abstract sculptural form, and creating a powerfully expressive document of experimental sound art. One-sided release in a limited edition of 300 copies.
