As part of the European project »on-the-fly«, the ZKM presents an
artistic live coding performance by Gaia Leandra.

In live coding, the composition process is brought onto the
stage. Algorithms are written and executed live and often
improvisationally in the form of source code. Live coding must
not be understood as a musical genre, but as a musical
performance practice. The musical result is determined by the
programmers and can touch on a wide variety of genres.

Gaia Leandra was selected on the occasion of the open call for
artistic residencies of the project »on-the-fly«.

During the event, the Italian artist and scientist Gaia Leandra
will introduce her artistic project and present a recording of
her interactive performance »Bioxeno«. Microscopic organisms and
their recorded visual parameters will be made sound in real time
by means of live coding.


»Necrobiopsi« is the video presentation of the performance
»Bioxeno«, a bioart project exploring different tools, practices,
techniques and disciplines to generate new narratives at the
interface of science and arts. Why do humans presume to cure a
sick earth? Why do they not take into consideration the vision of
a planet taking care of us? Only equilibrium makes the survival
of humans possible. We humans do not destroy the earth. It is our
way of life that generates large quantities of waste changing our
planet. The planet mutates. It readapts. From all its cycles.
From our cyanobacterial ancestors that generated an atmosphere
with oxygen, to a pulmonary asphyxy of the human physiology. We
undervalue the invisible micro-world, organisms that surround us,
that we are and have in our bodies, and whose balance creates the
conditions for our survival. Human health, as that of the entire
ecosystem, also resides in this invisible microworld that
interpenetrates and maintains us. »Necrobiopsi« is the future
without humans where egodriven indulgence has been the cause of
its extinction. A narrative where the remains of human cells and
their physiology have been phagocytosed from the protoctists. It
is the genesis of meta-humans as a form of artificial
intelligence, organisms without sex, without dualisms, without
dichotomies but as genetic necrophiliacs, terrestrial aliens,
walking communities.
