Micro Lux Chants (at RAW conference 2017, University of Texas at Dallas)


Published on

An ongoing research project on the sonification of the life cycle of bioluminescent bacteria in collaboration with the Gassensmith Lab and the ArtSciLab at University of Texas at Dallas. Bioluminescence is the light that is produced naturally by organisms. Bacteria called Vibrio Fischeri live in the belly of the Hawaiian Bobtail Squid. These bioluminescent bacteria have a symbiotic relationship with the squid. We are experimenting on the sonification of the life cycle of these bioluminescent bacteria. What do they sound like during their lifetime?
