Rhetorical Situation of Telemiscommunications
The audience is, primarily, an English speaking viewership, however anyone could potentially become a listener, despite a language barrier.
Deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman) and Imogen Heap.
The purpose of the music as well as the music video is to entertain its audience and invoke thought upon viewers.
The topic is ultimately about relationship struggles more specifically feeling “disconnected”.
The context of this song is very clear through the tone and melody of the song, as well as, the language. It is a sadder song, which can be seen by the mood of the song alone.

Ethos, Pathos, and Logos
A possible design type that our team would like to see created would be a device that a human could speak into and would then render and manipulate their words in real-time into a different language.
Future Sound Design Type
Deadmau5 and Imogen Heap are famous artists that have experience using elements of sequence and mood in their sound designs/music. There music also
achieved through a combination of language and appropriate mood communicated through sound for the artists to make their audience feel a certain way.
the song communicates it's purpose through the uses of the elements of mood, it's language and the sequencing of those words to achieve its purpose of entertaining and invoking emotion and thought.
Language / Content - The lyrics of the song depict a couple who are at a distance calling each other, the music supporting the song depicts that the sadness behind the words.

Mood -
melancholy, sad
