We think of plants as Non-Human Persons. Allowing them to sing through the technology called MIDI Sprout gives us an insight into their world as they observe us through the process of biofeedback. Plants outfitted with sensors are essentially antennae that express the energy shifts in their environment. These changes are turned into music as they are filtered through synthesizers.
While the implications of this process are exciting for performance and installations there is still much to be explored in the realm of bio-energy sensing and we’re inviting you to help!
Data Garden is a journal, record label and events producer encouraging the discovery of electronic music through the windows of history, science and community.
We research the heritage of primitive electronic art and explore the synthesis of biological and digital technologies as a channel of human expression. Data Garden creates a forum where new connections are made.
