Technical Details




We received data from various water samples around Ireland that covered a period of 18 years. The data was normalized and converted into MIDI and then further processed into a musical score. This score was given to our Softday Bacterial Ensemble, four young musicians from the B.Sc. Programme in Music, Media and Performance Technology in the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems at the University of Limerick. The score provided a framework for improvisation, as the live performance was to be in conjunction with the sounds coming from the live movements of Daphnia. The tonality between the score and our computer vision to sound algorithms was aligned to allow for an interesting and unique musical experience.
