Can music take us to seventh heaven? An album with ‘donated’ orgasms just might
Can music bring us to orgasm? Or at least give us an intense emotional experience that could help stir desire? To find out, try listening to a new album that promises to offer a slice of this seventh heaven, as all of its tracks were created from recordings of real orgasms.
That’s the challenge the producer and composer Matt Emery took on for the LELO brand. The “Extended Pleasure” EP features five tracks that mix several styles of music, such as jazz, classical, hip hop and rock.
To make this album, orgasms were “donated” by strangers and couples, including elderly lovers, a menopausal woman, a pansexual woman, a heterosexual couple and a bisexual couple, explains the brand.
Then, Emery transformed these sounds into sound waves, which form the basis of every track on the “Extended Pleasure” album.
“When emulating the orgasms and turning them into musical pieces, I composed the music writing to the actual orgasm sounds to capture the energy, tempo, and feel of each individual experience, which also helped decide which genre should be paired with each orgasm,” explains the composer.
Each piece of music is set in its own auditory atmosphere. Saxophone, acoustic guitar, piano or percussion instruments transport the listener, taking in styles from jazz to modern classical, lo-fi hip hop, post rock and ’70s dance.
