Daydreaming is a multi-channel electroacoustic composition that invites audiences on a sonic journey inspired by the distractions encountered during online meetings that have become a part of our lives during the pandemic. Commissioned by Electric Audio Unit, the piece delves into the mind of a host in an online meeting with multiple participants. As the composition unfolds, the listener experiences the transformative power of everyday sounds such as ringing phones, car horns, and glitches in the online stream. These sounds act as triggers, leading to an irresistible sonic exploration in which familiar events abandon their original meaning and give rise to new soundscapes that emerge from the very material of their existence.
