About this Event
in physics, sound is a vibration that propagates as an acoustic wave, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid. In human physiology and psychology, sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain. Sound waves above 20 kHz are known as ultrasound and are not audible to humans. Sound waves below 20 Hz are known as infrasound. Different animal species have varying hearing ranges.
Experience a sonic environment co-created with plants and fungi and take a moment to reconnect with the people and places around you.Biosonification involves portraying processes within organisms as music or sound.
At this event, electrodes and a midi-data biosonification device are used to convert changes in micro-conductivity in plants and fungi to midi notes, which "play" digital instruments. The audience will also have the great opportunity to place electrodes on plants, one another, or themselves and explore making music with bio data!.
Willow Gatewood is an eco-artist, musician, and writer. Grounded in research, their practice includes recycled and bio-based visual art, words, sound, and biosonification (turning processes within living organisms into music and sound). Themes of ecology, gender, and dismantling binaries guide playful exploration of materials and their stories. Willow loves finding objects and introducing chaos and regeneration in ways that invite us to question what we are seeing, with hopes to spark conversation around critical issues of our time and of our future.
