Robert Jarvis' latest sound installation is for the renowned Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden (www.hannahpescharsculpture.com).

Situated in a secluded part of the garden known as 'The Oriental Pond', a series of musical compositions emanate from the undergrowth. Fast moving but gentle musical patterns derived from the plants' DNA contrast with slower melodies based on different amino acid sequences governing the processes of growth and aging. The sounds slowly fade in, teasing the ears with their presence, and quietly dance around the pond before fading out again returning the listener to the garden's gentle soundscape.

The installation is the result of an eight month residency where Robert has been investigating related themes connected with the plants of the garden, including the ultrasonic acoustic emmisions of plants as well as the sonification of genetic data. A weblog diary at http://www.gr0w.wordpress.com documents many useful resources available on the internet.

The music was composed entirely in Kyma, also utilizing Harm Visser's physical modelling toolkit as well as advice and input from the Kyma community.
