Neural Module

kostyrko - photoNeural Module is the audio-visual performance by Sergey Kostyrko. The signals of 64 nanoelectrodes, which were covered by the layer of striatal and cerebral cortex cells, were recorded in the laboratory of Dr. Paul Roach from Loughborough University (UK) as a data array for further structuring and study. Using different software and hardware solutions, data is converted into electrical signals controlled by oscillators, filters, envelope generators and other modules of a Eurorack system. During the performance, the modules are combined into various functional blocks, which allow for a wide range of sound and video synthesis techniques. As a result, the electric signals from nerve cells are organized into complex audio-visual patterns.
