R. Murray Schafer has described “schizophonia” as a cognitive dissonance condition created by the situation of electroacoustic listening. Contrary to the natural world, where each sound is the result of a physical entity presented in a defined space, amplification offers the possibility of representations whose source is entirely absent and for which the scale, space and origin create contexts that do not at all resemble “reality”. A biodome is a museum of ecosystems, a sort of “pure” exterior, exotic and grandiose, in which the trees are fake, the forest painted, the light unconnected to the sun and animals live within an imitation of a natural habitat. Humans come to admire the fantasy of a world without humans. Biodôme is the representation of a space that is already schizophonic.
