Non-Human Rhythms is a series of live acts featuring different micro-organism and their bio-electrical activity translated into a sound process. During 2015 we recorded 3 different albums featuring Physarum Polycephalum, Geobacters and Algae.
We want to share our recordings so feel free to download and listen.
Live recorded with the Energy Bending Lab using two bio fuel cells as trigger for 4 different sound processors analog and digital. Paloma López + Leslie Garcia. Non-Human Rhythms 1 is the first of a series of live recordings featuring different micro-organism and there bio-electrical activity translated into a sound process. In this release listen to 30 minutes of signal originated in bacterial fuel cells.
Non-Human Rhythms 2 is the second release of a series of live recordings featuring different micro-organism and there bio-electrical activity translated into a sound process. In this release listen to 4 tracks of slime mould sonification. Develop at Bauhaus University as part of the Phychip project. Live recorded with the Energy Bending Lab and the Phytracker. Paloma López + Leslie Garcia.
During the fifth edition of the festival Novas frequencies in Rio de Janeiro, we were invited to perform a laboratory focus on the sonification of the bacteria present on the beaches of Rio. In the laboratory 10 local artists were selected through an open call. For a week we work together enabling a compact version of Bending Energy Lab that allowed them to create an interface between bacteria and their instruments. Thus creating the first non-human rhythms orchestra.
Participants in the laboratory: Biônicos, David Charles Cole, Felipe Ridolfi, Gama, Henry Schroy, Negalê Jones, peppe de souza e Re Sil, Leslie García, Paloma López.
