The study, made by Kiyu Nishida showing the usage of natural resources, such as slime mold and aloe vera leaves in modern music performances. In this particular research and experiment, the aim was to show the novel possibilities of sound based on unconventional technologies such as integrating biological forms and structures into traditional circuits — in our case, aloe vera. A biosignal has been used in experimental music as the material for composition.
How does it work?
For controlling the sound with the help of electricity level, we need to use a resistor. Exist more complex resistor — memrisotor. The functions are all the same, but memristor can memorize information and use it for further notice. Fascinating, that there are couple of memristors in a nature, such as slime mold and aloe vera. They are the bio-memtistors.
Nowadays, people are trying more and more to connect technologies with nature. One by one. Result is not always successful, but always worth it. The aloe vera sound creates new possibilities for performance, music experimenters in a new unique way.
The sound of the outcome you can listen below.
