Interspecifics oscillates between the vibrational bonds between species, using sound frequencies to reveal the never-before-seen worlds of bacteria, mold, human brain waves, and measurable data. It’s the sound of a panoramic environment, the language and patterns of sign communication, and the sonic intrigue of what Interspecifics call “Non-Human Rhythms.”
Leslie García and Paloma López work as composer-creators at the confluence of music, installation, and science. They are observers and transformers of physical phenomenon, using multiple artistic and scientific disciplines to sculpt a hybrid, living art that relies on DIY hardware to create what they call “ontological machines.” The piece / performance, Speculative Communications, required the creation of a “auto-generating non-human intelligence system,” an artificial intelligence that converts the behavior patterns of a microorganism into the source information for an audiovisual work. Interspecifics’ work is developed beyond the stage, too, in designing public workshops where their Open Source development is shared with other artist-researchers.
