BIOSC is an orchestra of biological performers. Each performer is a biological life form performing with electronics, various kinds of microphones, electronic and organic oscillators and many amplifiers. Listen to each sound separately on headphones and listen to the orchestras sound scape thru speakers. BIOSC implements bio(ana)logue systems, an organic process of coexisting living systems and analogue electronic systems.

Context & concept: //Description of the project //

BIOSC is an orchestra of biological performers. Each performer is a biological life form performing with electronics, various kinds of microphones, electronic and organic oscillators and many amplifiers. Listen to each sound separately on headphones and listen to the orchestras sound scape thru speakers. BIOSC implements bio(ana)logue systems, an organic process of coexisting living systems and analogue electronic systems. The installation features sound transmitted live as generated in organic/analog system and its emerging into composition.

Natural Oscillation

It’s true that analogue oscillators exist not just in traditional electronic circuits, but also in nature. This fact has lead us to wonder if it might be possible to build a completely natural electronic synthesiser.

Biologists have been studying natural oscillators for some time, to examine how our natural world functions temporally. For instance, how our hearts beat, circadium rhythms, cell motility systems, clocks within the hypocampus of the brain, and the list continues.

One common system of oscillation in our natural world that is studied and engineered is called Repressilators. This system is made up of repressors and activators….


Introduction

Humanity dominates so much of the natural world. But humans can’t conquer the natural world. In this project we have attempted to amplify natural creatures with technology that has come through the creative exploration of art and science. These technologies are made of both human-made and natural ready-mades.

We have attempted to connect with these natural creatures by exploring and exploiting (which is our natural habit as human beings). With our art/science, we endeavor to become part of these living systems, to visualise, sonify, touch and taste these natural creatures. We do this because we lack a real connection with them. Truthfully, no matter what we do to better understand the natural world, it is still full of mystery and wonder.

How we treat nature as a living creature - having its own spirit, and connection with it’s environment and even ourselves? Our efforts to educate ourselves about the natural world are for what we claim to be ‘a better life’, but whose better life??? These efforts are only in vain, as we are at the top of the food chain, and the main poluter/emitter/dismantler. What about the rest of the natural world, the unseen, the mysterious, always supporting our needs? What can we do for them?



Pak Markjono Sonifikasi Ikan

Marc Dusseiller (Dusjagr) has been exploring the sonification of weakly electric fish, such as the Black Ghost Knifefish, (inspired by a project by Anthony Hall called ENKI). This fish is a kind of electrogenic fish which naturally emits frequencies and pulses that they modulate in order to communicate and navigate. These fish are natural oscillars, creating sine wave fequencies that can be amplified.
