    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;This paper provides an overview of anacoustic modes of sound construction and virtual semiotics&amp;mdash;a propositional framework following N. Katherine Hayles&amp;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Techniques by Brün, 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.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
