Algae made with Breath of Opera Singer as Promo-Tool

Michiko Nitta und Michael Burton haben während der London Design Week eine Biotech-Musik-Algen-Dingsbums-Performance durchgeführt und die geht so: Eine Opernsängerin versorgt mittels eines Schlachsystems während des Singens mit ihrem Atem eine Algen-Kolonie und diese Algen wiederum werden mit der Aufnahme des Gesangs verkauft. Personalisierter Algensalat als Musik-Promo-Kunst, I love this! Falls jemand mal Algen aus meinem Odem versuchen möchte: Die schmecken wahrscheinlich sehr nach Pizza, Kippen und Schnapps. Guten Appetit!

An opera singer is transformed with biotechnology to form a unique relationship with algae.

The algae, which are a photosynthetic plant-like organism, feeds on the carbon dioxide in the singer’s breath. As an important future food source, the singer’s algae can also be eaten. Alongside listening to her music, the audience can also taste her song.

To increase the growth of the algae the body of the singer is trained to use her extraordinary large lung capacity to produce the highest quality algae-product. The composition of the song and the singer’s vocal technique are redesigned to specifically produce algae and enrich its taste. To do this, the composer and singer use the new science of sonic enhancement of food where different pitches and frequencies make food taste either bitter or sweet.

So in the age of biotechnology not only can the audience listen to her talent but they can also savor her unique blend of algae that are enriched by her song.
