Artist Tosca Terán along with Andre Greville - make up the duo Nanotopia. Together they have created the sound installation the Mycorrhizal Rhythm Machine which turns a Grow Room into a Fungi and Sprout music generator. Fine electrodes placed within roots of mycorrhizal plants, receive bio-data and translate this activity into electronic music. Tosca Terán joins NAISA Artistic Director Darren Copeland in this episode of Making Waves to explain her approach to creating music from fungi and mycelium.
