Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden,
Standon Lane, Ockley, Surrey RH5 5QR -- England, UK

Situated in a secluded part of the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden, Robert Jarvis' gr0w sound installation takes its inspiration from the genetic makeup of the surrounding plants growing nearby. The music was composed entirely in Kyma, utilising Harm Visser's physical modelling toolkit, as well as advice and input from the Kyma community.

Visitors to the garden hear fast moving but gentle musical patterns derived from the plants' DNA mixed with contrasting 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 genetically inspired compositions add a subtle presence to the surroundings - not in competition with the garden's natural soundscape, but complementing it: hinting at the unseen processes connected with the plants' growth. The result is an experience that connects the listener to the hidden but ever present micro-world of genetic activity and the underlying processes of life itself.
