Babies can drop sick beats before they’re actually born, thanks to fetuscore


This era really is for the (record) books. Because nothing less than a musical milestone is about to arrive: An album will be released on Apr. 2 and it’s by an unborn artist. You heard that right, and the album’s aptly titled “Sounds Of The Unborn”.

“The baby, named Luca Yupanqui, is the soon-to-be child of Psychic Ills bassist Elizabeth Hart and Lee “Scratch” Perry collaborator Iván Diaz Mathé. Yupanqui created the songs on her album using biosonic MIDI technology that translated her in-utero movements into sound. The MIDI device was hooked to Hart’s stomach, recorded the vibrations created by Yupanqui, and transcribed them into Mathé’s synthesizers, a meditative process that took place over five hour-long sessions,” according to Consequence of Sound.

The A.V. Club even proclaimed it as “paving the way” for the fetuscore genre. Basically some electronic implement is used to record vibrations from the fetus and is then tethered to a synthesizer to produce sounds. We don’t exactly know what to feel, but if you’re just as curious about how it sounds? Hear for yourself in the sample below:
