Music For Muscles is an expression of the physical and emotional need to occupy space, to imprint movement in it, and to create a dialogue between IT and the body through an electrified and highly charged continuum. It is an investigation into the fibers of muscles and space and how the exchange between them produces electrified states in need to create music. It is an attempt to have 5 distinct qualities of movement and time: legato, staccato, moderato, adagio and presto, to affect and create energetic states of being, and to express them by way of creating a musical score imagining the muscles being the notes on it. It is an attempt at understanding the dialogue between fluctuations in muscle processes and space-time continuum & the physical and nonphysical modulations they produce.
