Test Tone for Humanity / Attempts to Find the Square Root of 2 Alejandro Castaños, Charles Harding, Malte Leander

Test Tone for Humanity is a collaboratively developed electroacoustic composition that reflects upon the disconnection both between humans and to life itself that has occurred as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. By joining multiple compositional techniques from this group of composers, a merging of styles, personal responses and intentions has woven an intricate sonic reflection on the pandemic’s affects upon humanity. This project was overseen and mentored by Michael Pinsonneault.
