with the support of the STARTS Residencies Project as part of the STARTS initiative of the European Commission 


Beyond Absolute is the creation of personalized acousmatic soundscapes based on the data generated by the LUCA diagnostic device in conjunction with sonic alterations that represent the subjective mindset of the thyroid cancer patients. The title of the project refers both to the representational character of the project (as opposed to absolute music), but also to the effort it makes to transcend, without denying, the objective physiological measurements at the root of modern scientific medicine.
