l’Ao will be unveiling our new performance piece, Biophonic Beats, as part of our residency at the Boyd Hill Nature Preserve for the 2018 Florida International Toy Piano Festival.
Biophonic Beats is a simulacrum of the interlocking sonic umwelten created by different species vocalizing non-human animals. In any given environment, the sounds created by an individual species will shift and adapt to changes in the soundscape. The shifting, adaptive texture of Biophonic Beats is derived from the manufactured human rituals of communal dance; re-imagining anthropophony as biophony.
