ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) is a term that describes the pleasant phenomenon of tingling around the scalp, shoulders and spine, caused by certain visual, olfactory, auditory or tactile stimuli. It is sometimes perceived as a deeply relaxing sensation whose effect is compared to that of meditation. When creating his “ASMR Machine”, Doroszenko focused on producing sensations through a specifically composed sound and a set of prepared speakers emitting the composition. In addition to drones and accents, the speakers also emit natural sounds not registered in the composition, but made by elements placed directly on the surface of the speakers. The form and construction of the installation allow the listener to directly enter the sound area and play with its spatial character by changing the position of listening and the distance from a given sound source. The installation is also attuned to the acoustic character of the space in which it is mounted.
