A Sonic Artifact is a physical object that represents and contains a musical album and allows for real time interaction with the listener. We restore the association of music with the physical artifact of its delivery, a design of the music merchandise of the future, now with the ability to interact with the music in real time. Rather than the audio experience being delivered as a file via a centralized music streaming platform or other method, the music will reside in an active environment associated with the artist. The musical experience has the potential to be unique upon each listen and the total composition and is dependent on the actions of the listener. If the listener chooses, they get to be a part of the composition.
