Created by Ain TheMachine, Musica Biotronica takes sounds from
the body, voice and everyday objects, and with the help of technology,
transforms them into the soundtrack of our everyday life.
Musica Biotronica borns from the relationship between Organic sounds + Synthetic process. Sounds from body, voice and daily objects transcend their ephemeral existence to become music.
It is precisely this transformation that challenges our relationship with music.
By removing traditional instruments and involving audiences in the creation of music, Ain seeks challenge limiting beliefs we have towards music.

But making music with everyday sounds requires a scientific approach.
Which is why Ain continually experiments with recording techniques and digital processing settings to get the best sounds from the objects around us.
This also involves exploring the phonetics, articulation and processing of the voice.
Similarly, turning a body into a drum kit requires an investigation on how and where to play the body, as well as how to best record it.
From layering vocals and pitching, to adding subtle effects, the technology plays an important part in transforming the role of the organic sound.
Ain believes that Musica Biotronica brings the magic of daily life to reality.
It gives us a way to paint musical portraits of the world around us.
