  "description": "<p>This paper provides an overview of anacoustic modes of sound construction and virtual semiotics&mdash;a propositional framework following N. Katherine Hayles&rsquo;s posthumanism for the creation and analysis of electroacoustic music. Anacoustic modes address the computer at its most fundamental level: the syntactic level of information. This changes the nature of signification as sound is considered first as an informational construct rather than a material circumstance, rupturing the front-loaded meaning that arises from our acoustic experience.</p>\n\n<p>Techniques by Br\u00fcn, Xenakis, and Tone elucidate the anacoustic concept and form a basis for identifying sonic parameters unique to their methods. This paper concludes with an expanded view of virtual semiotics based on current artistic research by the author, which establishes a symbiosis of anacoustic modes with standard digital practices.</p>",
