A woman hearing music for the first time, via two angels and an audio umbilical cord leading to two microphones, into which a pair of wrens are singing.
'Musica Universalis' is an ancient philosophical concept that regards proportions in the movements of celestial bodies as a form of music.
Some say we can hear music in the womb, others hear angelic voices, get hooked on ear worms,  listen to space telescopes, sound waves, gramophones and others record the sounds of nature.
