Project description

In a drop of water, members of the microscopic world_microorganisms, moss, corpses, air bubbles and many other beings_ play music in this project.

The main material of project is river from Anseong (Korea) and Weimar (Germany)_ two cities where I currently live. Rivers of the two cities become a single droplet, an unbounded transperipheral state due to the physical property of water '1+1=1'.

The movement of the microorganisms in one water drop is converted into sound data through Max/Msp patch and generate sound according to a designed music notation in real time.

This project proposes a new aesthetic, auditory experience, and the expansion of perception. This is also a metaphor for my physical and mental state after living abroad for a long time away from hometown _especially during the pandemic, unable to visit home for two and a half years.
