* THE COMPOSITION:
Eduardo Reck Miranda’s Biocomputer Rhythms is duet for a pianist and an interactive biocomputer. The biocomputer listens to the piano and generates responses in real-time. It uses electromagnets to vibrate the strings of the piano and percussion instruments.
The system employs bioprocessors made with a unicellular organism known as Physarum polycephalum. Each bioprocessor works like a resistor that has memory. The sounds of the piano are converted into voltage variations, which are input to the bioprocessors. The components process the voltages and outputs respective current values, which are converted into commands to vibrate specific strings of the piano or play a percussion instrument.
The biocomputer harnesses the intrinsic intelligence of Physarum polycephalum to implement a new kind of Artificial Intelligence system, referred to a natural Artificial Intelligence, or n-AI.
The interactive biocomputer was developed in collaboration with Edward Braund at the University of Plymouth’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) in the United Kingdom.
