Interactive Polyphonic Garden

The Interactive Polyphonic Garden is an interactive, ambisonic piece that intimately explores our relationship with the living, breathing and animate world.

Using tools of biosonification and a curated garden of Indigenous plants, Ruby Singh and Cease Wyss raise songs and melodies from flora and fungi, transforming bioelectricity into midi data to inform pitch and rhythm. What emerges are complexly layered sonic ecologies of connection and wonder for the natural world. You are invited to deepen your own connection to these living beings by mixing these signals into your own polyphonic sound scape while considering how we might all move towards right relations with these generous lands, waters and skies.

A collaboration between Ruby Singh and Cease Wyss.

 



Ruby Singh

Ruby Singh is a multi award winning performer, composer and producer residing on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh Nations (Vancouver BC.). His work is informed by sound found all around us, from the whirling planets and stars of distant galaxies to percussion of an umbrella under coastal rains, to the perpetual moving birdsong of the dawn chorus, constantly circling the globe. The richly imaginative visual textures to his sound design have found kinship in the theatre, film and dance worlds, where he has been celebrated by multiple Jessie and Leo award nominations. In 2022 he received the Lieutenant Governor’s Jubilee Award for excellence in art and music, and in 2023 was nominated for a Juno award for best Global Music Album of the Year. Singh believes in art’s ability to reimagine futures, to repurpose aesthetic freedoms toward civil and environmental justice.
