About RPM

RPM Challenge is a month long event that takes place in February each year to challenge musicians in recording an album's worth of all original music. Learn More

Iron Sulphur World (2011)

11 tracks coming from the genomes of various organisms (and one virus). This is the generation 1 system. Prokaryotes sound like a lot of overtone chanting with ringing gongs. When we get to the more complex eukaryotes things get a more interesting.

Pathways (2013)

This music was generated by a software modular synthesizer programmed by me. To create it an virtual environment was created with virtual bacteria that carried out various metabolic reactions. Not all bacteria had the same catabolic and anabolic reations so they could break down various molecules and produce others as waste productions. The simulation was allowed to run and the various molecules in the virtual environment was measured and used to program and drive the modular synthesizer. To get the different parts of the music I allowed different metabolic pathways in the virtual bacteria. In the end I added some eBow guitar to make it more interesting.

BIOGRAPHY

The 24 cores started life in a the dense center of a star where basic elements were fused into heavier materials. These materials started collecting at a certain point creating the planet known as Earth. Many billions of years later, a small race of biological systems, known as homo sapiens, mined that matter and used primitive manufacturing techniques to create powered logic gates in an organized fashion to create a processing system. This was known as a computer. This is the musicians of BioLogik's music using a generative modular synthesizer that is both built from and the sounds created by examining genomic and biological data.
