Responsive Sounds & Images

Representing a musical ecosystem, this work contains abstract organisms that are in a constant dialogue with their auditive counterpart. Inspired by evolution, micro-biology and the beauty of complex systems, we set out to redefine the role of composer and designer.

Each life form is designed on a completely mathematical basis, essentially consisting of a series of formulas which provide a near-infinite amount of parameters. Insuring an overall aesthetic as a species, but with a high degree of variation within, passed on through asexual reproduction in the form of short DNA sequences.
