Ten Minutes Of Cordyceps Playing Modular Synth While Being Harvested

Using a bio data sonification device and a eurorack modular synthesizer I hook up a tub full of Cordyceps Militaris to play synth as it is being harvested.

Electrical resistance is measure by passing a small current through the mushrooms similar to a lie detector test. The changes in resistance are then converted into control signals which determine the rhythm, pitch, timbre and effects parameters of the modular synthesizer.
