[OF MYCE & MANKIND]
A bio-data sonification series celebrating the interplay between humans and plants.
I made a small electronic device that can connect to plants or any living organisms (like mushrooms growing out of a book).
Designed to detect bio-electric signals whilst simultaneously capturing levels of ambient light, temperature, and movement via electrode pads and/or copper wires.
The data is then converted into MIDI and processed through Max MSP to produce sounds in real-time,
Then I improvise with it on the shō, like having a little chat with the plant, or something.
