about

Biomimicry is an autonomous musical system that draws on perceptual features of an improviser to synthesise a response. By parsing the collaborators sound into Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients the system is imbued with an evaluative capability and can assess changes in amplitude and timbre in order to shape its interactive behaviour. At its heart, the system is designed to be cohesive and unified with its human counterpart but at times its digital memory fails and the system's sensibility emerges. Biomimicry is released as five distinct physical copies each containing a unique instance of the system. In this digital release, you have access to all of those versions and can fully observe the depth and variety of interactive connections that were created between the performers and the system.
