In the film Blade Runner, the baseline test is part of police protocol and designed to test the effects of a blade runner’s job on their brain and psyche, looking for any emotional deviation and analysing the subject’s operational stability. As a blade runner’s job was to pressure and kill their own kind, it was deemed necessary to be constantly assessed as to whether their work was having a moral impact on them. To be “off baseline” would be considered a failure of this test.

This audio work simulates a baseline test for human beings, studying real people with real emotions and their moral reactions.

Each participant is subjected alone to a 8-minute test in English.
