“Intra-Action” Bacterial Cellulose Synth

Kombucha Scoby, Arduino, Max MSP, 3d printed mask made in Zbrush

Created for New Instruments for Musical Expression (NIME)

Intra-Action “queers the familiar sense of causality”

Creating a hypernatural scape by generating sound from kombucha scoby (bacterial cellulose created by kombucha), exploring ways of relating to non-human forms. The scoby is used as a capacitive touch sensor, changing currents depending on how it’s touched.
