Shock in the Ear is an experimental new media art work, which evokes the moment of shock and its aftermath, as a sensual experience. Mixing music and texts, from culture shock to electric shock and reverberating beyond into shock aesthetics, it resonates with deep and abrupt physical and physical and psychic change.

In a playful spirit of philosophical inquiry, it explores the paradoxes of technology, desire and the paranormal posed since the birth of mechanical reproduction; the phonograph severing the voice from the body, photography capturing the soul and cinema resurrecting the dead.
