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.
