Artist Statement:


    This interactive installation consists of musical creatures – autonomous, virtually embodied characters living within a sonic environment. The movement of their graphical bodies produces music and reflects their understanding of the sounds that they hear. In this installation, computer animation and music are synthesized through the creatures’ animal-inspired artificial intelligences.
