Non-Human Rhythms 2015

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 (eurorack modules)

  After almost two years doing some research and test we are finally finishing our first generation of eurorack modules. We are working on documenting each module and uploading the details to our repository.

Beta Version

The Energy Bending Lab is a modular instrument comprised of a set of custom-built synthesizers and transduction tools to create a real-time sonification of electric properties found in some bacteria. And through the use of cymatics—visible frequency vibrations—it is later converted into a pattern generator. Conceptualized as a DIY interspecies...
Microbial fuel cells

Microbial fuel cells

Microbial fuel cells harness the power of bacteria and convert energy released in metabolic reactions into electrical energy. The  cell consists of two electrodes separated by a semi-permeable membrane submersed in an electrolyte solution. The bacteria break down food wastes and sewage to generate an electric current and continue to...
Energy Bending Lab _ first sonification with biocells

Energy Bending Lab _ first sonification with biocells

Esta sonificación fue realizada a partir de 2 bioceldas alimentadas por consorcio bacteriano. Utilizamos muestras de sedimento de playas de Tijuana.  Se trata de una improvisación de 50 minutos utilizando el Energy Bending Lab conectado a otros instrumentos análogos. La presentación se llevo a cabo en la galería TJINCHINA en colaboración con Moises...
Residency @ TodaysArt _ The energy bending system

Residency @ TodaysArt _ The energy bending system

After two weeks of intensive work between The Hague and Amsterdam, we ran a series of experiments in the wetlab at Waag Society. This helped us to make the first development notes about this system we are currently prototyping - which we called The energy bending system.

Residency @ Cimatics _ Circadian biology to Analog sound synthesis

Since an oscillator is the simplest clock generation source creating a single output frequency from a single component (1) at the core of all circadian clocks is at least one internal autonomous circadian oscillator .

Meet the electric life forms that live on pure energy

Unlike any other life on Earth, these extraordinary bacteria use energy in its purest form – they eat and breathe electrons – and they are everywhere. Via New Scientist
Residency @ Cimatics _ The Bio-Oscillator V.0.1

Residency @ Cimatics _ The Bio-Oscillator V.0.1

Finally we presented the version 0.1 of our bio-oscillator, which is only the beginning of a series of prototypes that we will develop to discuss the issue of sound ubiquity and the use of sensory capabilities of living matter, to have a more broader approach on the idea on how our perception is formed from...

Residency @ Cimatics _ Setting Up

The Interspecifics project officially begins with the ECAS residency and its first host Cimatics in the beautiful Brussels. Most of our activities take place within the Forest area with Duden Park as the bridge we have to cross daily on our way from the laboratory to the department. Bains Connective is the space for our temporary...
Synthetic biology:  applications come of age

Synthetic biology: applications come of age

Synthetic biology is bringing together engineers and biologists to design and build novel biomolecular components, networks and pathways, and to use these constructs to rewire and reprogram organisms. These re-engineered organisms will change our lives over the coming years, leading to cheaper drugs, ‘green’ means to fuel our cars and targeted therapies for attacking ‘superbugs’...

European do-it-yourself (DIY) biology: Beyond the hope, hype and horror

The encounter of amateur science with synthetic biology has led to the formation of several amateur/do-it-yourself biology (DIYBio) groups worldwide. Although media outlets covered DIYBio events, most seemed only to highlight the hope, hype, and horror of what DIYBio would do in the future. Here, we analyze the European amateur biology movement to find out who...

ULF Geomagnetic Changes Associated with Large Earthquakes

ULF Geomagnetic Changes Associated with Large Earthquakes

There is a good deal of accumulated evidence of precursory signatures in a wide frequency range (DC-VHF). ULF geomagnetic change is one of the most promising phenomena and it suggests that short-term prediction is realizable.
Genetic circuits: Bacterial 'FM radio' created

Genetic circuits: Bacterial ‘FM radio’ created

Programming living cells offers the prospect of harnessing sophisticated biological machinery for transformative applications in energy, agriculture, water remediation and medicine. Inspired by engineering, researchers in the emerging field of synthetic biology have designed a tool box of small genetic components that act as intracellular switches, logic gates, counters and oscillators. But scientists have found...

Global Consciousness Project Meaningful Correlations in Random Data

Coherent consciousness creates order in the world Subtle interactions link us with each other and the Earth When human consciousness becomes coherent, the behavior of random systems may change. Random number generators (RNGs) based on quantum tunneling produce completely unpredictable sequences of zeroes and ones. But when a great event synchronizes the feelings of millions...
Electromagnetic Spectrum: The Universe at Multiple Frequencies

Electromagnetic Spectrum: The Universe at Multiple Frequencies

The electromagnetic spectrum describes the range of electromagnetic waves placed in order of increasing frequency. At one end of the spectrum are radio waves, which have a very low frequency and long wavelengths. At the other end of the spectrum are high-frequency (short wavelength) gamma rays. All electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed –...

A Cosmology of Invisible Fluids: Wireless, X-Rays, and Psychical Research around 1900

This article traces the relations between the early histories of wireless and X-ray technology. It does so by highlighting the role played by psychic research to open the connections between different technologies and knowledges.
