REMI Sings is an electroacoustic performance for the bio-inspired Rhizomatic Experimental Musical Interface (REMI) and accordion. REMI is an interactive networked musical organism that receives sonic input from its environment, processes it based on the ever changing structure of its interior network, and generates a unique musical output. This rhizomatic network is a software structure modelled after the functioning and growth patterns of biological rhizomes, specifically the mycorrhizal association that form vital nutrient pathways for the majority of the planet's land-plant ecosystems. The performance REMI Sings highlights this interface's interactive nature, creating a dialogue between human performer and non-human musical intelligence.
