“Fermentophone” by Joshua Pablo Rosenstock


Fermentophone is a multi-sensory installation in which an algorithmically generated musical composition is performed by living cultures of bacteria and yeast. The installation comprises a series of different vessels containing actively fermenting foodstuffs and beverages, which are wired with electronic sensors. Each colorful, odorous, and edible ferment has its own musical vocabulary which is expressed according to microbial activity.
 The installation was presented at the Hacking Arts festival at the MIT Media Lab.

Net_Music_Weekly: Scale

scale_electricfish.jpgScale is a bio-art collaboration with neurobiologist/ engineer Malcolm MacIver, visual/ conceptual artist Marlena Novak, and composer/ sound designer Jay Alan Yim. It is being presented at STRP Festival, Eindhoven, Netherlands.

This audience-interactive installation involves electric fish from the Amazon River Basin. Twelve different species of these fish comprise a ‘choir’ whose sonified electrical fields provide the source tones for an immersive audiovisual environment. The interface for Scale incorporates custom-designed software, a hacked Wiimote ‘conductor’s baton’ that participants can use to ‘cue’ individual fish so their unadulterated tones (as well as digitally processed versions) can be heard through the audio system, a touchscreen panel to allow for changes in volume, and arrays of LEDs under each tank to provide visual feedback to visitors.

Live Stage: Noise Exploration [uk London]

noise-copy.jpgCafe Scientifique presents Making Noise, a night of perceptual exploration :: October 26, 2009; 7:30 p.m. :: The Horse Hospital, 30 Colonnade, WC1N 1JD, London, UK.

Join our scientists, artists and musicians as we ask the questions: When does noise gain meaning? And – Are we nearly cyborgs?

Short talks by Dr Mick Grierson’s demo of his computer brain interface – generating noise environments from brain waves! Patrick Degenaar, on visual prosthetics for augmented vision – and the prospects for bionic eyes. Lauren Stewart on what our brain does with music, and why some people (with amusia) just don’t get it. And Joydeep Bhattacharya on why sounds stir our emotions. Continue reading

EvoMUSART 2010 – Biologically Inspired Music… [tr Istanbul]

music_x220.jpg[Image: Gil Alterovitz’s translation of genes (circles) into music … via A Musical Score for Disease] EvoMUSART 20108th European Workshop on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design :: April 7-9, 2010 :: Istanbul, Turkey :: CALL FOR PAPERS – Deadline: November 4, 2009.

EvoMUSART 2010 is the eight workshop of the EvoNet working group on Evolutionary Music and Art. Following the success of previous events and the growth of interest in the field, the main goal of EvoMUSART 2010 is to bring together researchers who are using biologically inspired techniques for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work in this area.

Accepted papers will be presented orally at the workshop and included in the EvoWorkshops proceedings, published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Continue reading

Hackteria & labhacking [de Berlin]

hackteria.jpgHackteria & labhacking with Marc R. Dusseiller & Kaspar Koenig :: May 30 – June 3, 2009; 12:00 – 6:00 pm daily :: NK, ElsenStr. 52 (2.Hof) Berlin, Germany :: Course Participation fee: 100 euros :: Registration required (limited to 16) — email enka_nkATgmxDOTde

Experimental make-workshop with multilayered outcome for people interested in sound, DIY-biology, microscopy and interaction of living microorganisms. Knowledge in physical computing, video and sound processing, electronics and puredata is welcome, but not compulsary. The experiments will take place in close-up view of microorganisms (e.g. water bears aka tardigrades, amoebae and collected organisms from urban environments), which appears to be a world by itself. Maybe due to the scaling and the amplification of a microscope, but maybe also due to all parameters of imagination that the microcosmos provokes. Growth and behaviour of these microscopic animals remind us of our own micro-macro-development. Continue reading

Live Stage: e-MobLArt [gr Thessaloníki]

n81846179124_897.jpgThe Institute of Unnecessary Research presents e-MobLArt — Exhibition of the European Mobile Lab for Interactive Media Artists following a one year collaboration :: May 20 – June 10, 2009 :: Opening: May 20; 8:00 pm :: Center for Contemporary Art – Warehouse B1, Thessaloníki, Greece.

The exhibition includes two projects involving Anna Dumitriu: KryoLab is an installation that brings together bioart, ice sculpture and sound, in an investigation of delicate relationships in the Arctic ecosystem. This work is about our journey, the experience of participating in the E-MobiLArt project, working with artists from other backgrounds and travelling to new locations. Initial discussions about the nature of arctic, the sound of cracking ice, the disintegration of ice with sound, and the bacterial flora of the Arctic, discussed under the hot Athens sun at the first workshop gained momentum during long nights of conversation illuminated by the cool midnight sun at the edge of the Arctic Circle.

Synapse and Sonic Landscapes

synapse.jpgSynapse: Collaboration between the arts and sciences has the potential to create new knowledge, ideas and processes beneficial to both fields. Artists and scientists approach creativity, exploration and research in different ways and from different perspectives; when working together they open up new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting the world around us. For the past decade, the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) has provided opportunities for artists and scientists to work together. Through Synapse, and in partnership with the Australia Council for the Arts, ANAT offers residencies, the Synapse Database and now ANAT is pleased to announce its latest initiative: a moderated elist discussion on contemporary art and science collaborations in fields including bioart, artificial intelligence, robotics, climate change and space, amongst others. You can subscribe here. Continue reading
