Twelve small wooden bird houses are installed at the...

Eine Kleine GeneMusiK

GeneMusiK rides Again!

The GeneMusiK project had its origins in 2003 during a three month Artist in Residence hosted by the SymbioticA lab at the University of Western Australia.  At that time I worked in the Department of Agricultural Sciences with Dr Gary Cass on the conceptual and biological framework of a system that would allow music to be encoded into DNA sequences.

So what of language, of negotiation,...
