Project Main Details

Read philosophy passage 
For a self-funded indie documentary about technology dissension, starting with wireless and EMF. Person will read a passage from modernist philosopher Martin Heidegger from Questions Concerning Technology. The read will appear over a 42 second nature clip I shot with ambient sound and accompanied by smooth music, with a few seconds of non-narrative on each end of the clip. *******************************************

The voice is serious, dark, monotone, and paced to about 35 seconds. Tone-wise, it should be low-mid, perhaps close-mic’d with controlled sibilance. (48khz)

My documentary is somewhat eccentric, sci-fi-ish, industrial, and symbolic, interspersed with relevant philosophy. I am creating short chapters with periodic chapter composites. Initially this doc will only exist on my website and Vimeo.

The summation of the quote is: Consuming technology, using it is not enough; we have to question it and teach others to question it.

Thus we shall never experience our relationship to the essence of technology so long as we merely conceive and push forward the technological, put up with it, or evade it. Everywhere we remain unfree and chained to technology, whether we passionately affirm or deny it. But we are delivered over to it in the worst possible way when we regard it as something neutral.
