This is our 'electronic' nose which converts smells into music notes. During my recent artist residency at Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Sept-Oct 2011 I tested the device on various compounds used in the lab to train rats, and on two types of mouse urine. The device is at the first stage of development. We intend to further develop this for art installation/performance.
