"I have heard it said that when in an Anechoic chamber in complete silence, the human ear can begin to pick up two sounds in the key of C. One low in tone is the blood flowing around the body, the second higher in pitch is that of the nervous system. 'A Human Concerto' is an attempt by the artist to transcribe the perceived sound of the human nervous system and flow of blood into musical notation."--Statement provided by the artist.
