  3. 3. Statement of Intent: Cloud 9 <ul><li>We intend to create a 9-step experience leading to &quot;Cloud 9,&quot; the state of nirvana, tranquil bliss, or ecstasy. We draw upon the idea that, in a classic path toward nirvana, the subject feels increasingly lightweight and unencumbered, shedding perceived physical and mental burdens. Our intention is to recreate this experience by engineering sound as the user moves through a defined space, where each step, 1-9, triggers a unique audio effect, and Cloud 9 is a spatial and auditory representation of nirvana. </li></ul>
