Life in the Shadows

A research driven project in collaboration with NASA + Caltech

What are the parameters of life?

Has life originated more than once?

How likely is life to exist elsewhere in the universe?

These are the fundamental questions being asked by a research group called ‘Boundaries of Life’.

The Boundaries of Life Initiative is answering fundamental questions about the diversity of life and the various forms it could take — many of which may not yet be recognized.

In 2017 I partnered with this group to investigate how their research might inform different approaches to sound and music making. As part of this research I undertook a self directed residency at the Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (M.E.S.S).

During the residency I created the score for a short documentary which featured the scientists involved in the project.
