Species Counterpoint is an invitation to meditate on our kinship with the plant kingdom by highlighting the commonality and variations of our respective genetic codes. Counterpoint is a form of musical writing that consists of the organized superposition of distinct melodic lines. The installation Species Counterpoint features a player piano on which are played two melodies respectively obtained from the transcription of a plant and human DNA sequence. Based on the fact that plants and humans share 60% of their genetic material, this sound installation proposes to listen to a composition that celebrates this sensory community between plant and human organisms.
