A biofeedback personal sound journey.


In developing the technology for our work with plant-sonification, we have found many applications beyond our initial intentions. With Personified, we invite individuals to use the same exact interface that we originally developed for use with plants on their own bodies.

We believe this interface and others like it could be viable tools for for professional music production and for music therapy in the future. As a musical instrument, extremely fine control of real-time bio-feedback allows endless possibilities in the development of new musical ideas. As a tool for healing, the interface puts the user in a real-time sonic bubble generated by variation of their skin’s contact with two probes, encouraging awareness of the body and presence in the moment. We invite visitors to explore Personified by developing their own relationship with this human/computer instrument.
