A river of city circulates physically and (perhaps) mentally with the citizens_ This work metaphorically expresses my current physical and mental state through the microscopic world in water drop mixed with rivers of two cities, Anseong (Korea) and Weimar (Germany), which closely connected to me.
Use Touch Designer or max map. Overlay music notes and the video relaying the movement of microorganisms through the microscope. When the movement of microorganisms intersects the five lines of music note, the corresponding scale_do re mi pa sol la si do _ is played in real time.
Microorganisms in the water drop are observed through a microscope and recorded on video. The video is shown on the screen in real time. The data of the movement of microorganisms are converted into sound data values. Sound is generated and played back in real time.
*Use a large screen to contrast the microscopic world.
* Separate transparent spheres containing water from both cities. Water is constantly changing in the exhibition space. The sphere shape present 'Circulation' and 'Oneness'.
'''Water of River'''
I think that city rivers and citizens share the same body. People in the city drink the river water.
The sewage produced by human excretion goes through a purification process and returns to the river.
River water becomes the water we drink again.
-Our bodies (muscles and blood) are made up of water.
-Suitability as a physical property.
1 water drop + 1 water drop = 1 water drop
Water are always become Oneness, not separated.

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 this project is River from Anseong (Korea), 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.
Music notation consists of a total of 27 numbers and 27 horizontal lines. The number refers to the MIDI number on MaxPatch. Among the 27 lines, 15 lines are displayed as 3 music sheet and solid lines. 12 lines exist in an invisible form between the music sheets. As the line goes from bottom to top and the higher the number, the higher the pitch of the note. The three music sheet does not function as a timeline like a usual music sheet. It only functions to distinguish the pitch of a note. The bottom sheet represents the first octave, and the top sheet represents the third octave. All notes are played simultaneously the moment the microbe crosses the line.
Max/Msp: It tracks the movement of the microbe, and whenever the microbe crosses the lines of the music notation, a corresponding scale is played.
Connecting the microscope to maxmsp patch:
Connect a Canon camera to the microscope and take a video the enlarged scean in the water drop through the microscope. It transfers the video shot with Canon camera to maxmsp patch through OBS virtual camera webcam utility.
