From "Controls" by Some Pepper.
Accelerated footage of slime mold, care of Kyoto Dictyostelium Group, shows a charming, intelligent life form.
In the spirit of camaraderie, I arranged these videos over music made in the biological way. Five feedback loops, each manipulated by electronics and eachother, no outside source, just a complete and contained organic microcosm in which their exposure to eachother and the basic parameters of their actions are set and adjusted by a conscious aesthete mind.
I cannot match the beauty seen and unseen in these curious fungi. This is a set capture of organisms, in the classical and electronic sense, doing their thing. The limits of recording the slime mold are matched with the limits of complexity in my homemade instrument. I hope you find them complimentary.
