Softday Bacterial Ensemble

The 18th of April 2009, the Softday Bacterial Ensemble performed the live music and multimedia Nobody Leaves 'till the Daphnia Sing. The performance with both humans and Daphnia Magna was a once off, but the INFECTIOUS exhibition and our installation with the Daphnia runs until the 17th of July 2009.

Nobody Leaves Until the Daphnia Sings

A new Softday project

Finally Sean and I got the NLUTDS installation finished at the INFECTIOUS exhibition in the Science Gallery in Dublin.

The installation has four stations, each with a Petri-dish with a few Daphnia swimming around, veiwed by a web-cam connected to an Apple iMac (Thanks to Apple for support!), with a PD/GEM-patch making vocalizations depending on the movement of the Daphnia. The voices of the stations are Bass, Tenor, Alto and Soprano.

We are also growing Daphnia on site....

The exhibition runs from the 17th of April 2009 to the 17th of July 2009
