Synthesis Engine: Ableton Live
Duration: 61 minutes

The Book of Magnetic Inquiries is an electroacoustic work that imagines the qualities of the following three types of magnetism through multiple studies: Diamagnetism, which pervades all matter and is repelled by magnetic fields, but is ultimately weak and easily overwhelmed; Paramagnetism, which is attracted to magnetic fields but does not retain its magnetism in the absence of an applied magnetic field; Ferromagnetism, which is the property of a material which is itself a permanent magnet.
