‘In a first determination, an affection is the following: it's a state of a body insofar as it is subject to the action of another body.’[1]

The sound material at the origin of Affectio consists of the diverse rendering of the same sonorous field by different recording technologies. The juxtaposition of this diverse outcome prompts a number questions: What is the boundary between what we perceive as the characteristics of a recorded source and what we perceive as the characteristics of a process of mediation? How is our experience of the spatial in sound inherent to a material process of transduction? What is the role of technology in modulating our engagement with the sensed?
