Mushrooms Talking Live: Cordyceps Militaris Plays The Make Noise Strega and A Few Others Things


video by MycoLyco

"Cordyceps Militaris Mushrooms are connected to the new Make Noise Strega via the Instruo Scion. The Scion measures changes in resistance and converts them to control voltages and gates. In addition to the Strega there is another voice controlled by the Scion. This voice is the DPO into optomix QPAS and Mimeophon. This voice is then fend into the external input of the Strega. The all parameters being controlled are being controlled by CV from the mushrooms except the filter cutoff which is being controlled by the onboard envelop follower for the external input."

Ten Minutes Of Cordyceps Playing Modular Synth While Being Harvested
"Using a bio data sonification device and a eurorack modular synthesizer I hook up a tub full of Cordyceps Militaris to play synth as it is being harvested.

Electrical resistance is measure by passing a small current through the mushrooms similar to a lie detector test. The changes in resistance are then converted into control signals which determine the rhythm, pitch, timbre and effects parameters of the modular synthesizer."

  1. Signals as they are being picked? So, this is snuff music?
