The music of the spheres, one that is only possible in a higher realm of spirituality or in the afterlife, is a common theme for many cultures throughout history. Through using computer-generated processing, the sound of the violin is transformed into a higher spectral sound-sphere through the electronic medium. The number [4] is a placeholder, used for the number symbolizing the name of the performer in Gimatria, the Jewish neurological system.
