UB still 03.png

We are the Universe Breathing.

Evolving symbiotic electronic improvisation.  Union of blood and silicone.

 

Mutated DNA coalesced in June 2019 after conception within the mind of Human component at La Trobe University (Melbourne) and a twenty-year gestation period. Currently composed of Human, Mac, iPad, Max MSP, Native Instruments and other software components, with capacity to assimilate audio and visual hardware for communication purposes.

 

Movement currently restricted to cyberspace due to unwanted political/economic response to possibility of attack on Human component.
