Dylan Henner

The Invention of the Human (LP)

Label: AD 93

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

"The Invention of The Human" is designed as a response to the question "what makes us human?" The question has become increasingly important in this period of history, in that many of the answers aren't good enough. "Civilisation" could be one answer; but what good is civilization where there is so much misery within it?

"Progress" could be another; but what good is progress without kindness and empathy to sustain it? Taking the thought of man's relationship with technology as a measure of humanity, I asked the computer "what do you think a human sounds like?", and with that I built this album of synthesised vocals, wondering if technological development can help explain what we are.

The vinyl release consists of two ~ 20 min pieces, while the digital release features extended versions of the music in those pieces, making 8 individual tracks.

Synchronised with Henner’s core inquiry, the physical packaging (designed collaboratively between Alex McCullough and C’estainsi studio) employs a combination of machine learning and mechanical plotting to mimic the human mind and hand.
