Phylogenetic Music

Concept for music for a documentary: Every sculpture generates its own musical score. The phylogenetic tree through the geological time scale is the musical score. The green line moves from left to right. Sounds may be designated for the different periods of geological time. Each time the green line passes over an X (which marks a point of shared ancestry for the selected 16 species) a sound is generated. The sound may be modified. The “music” that is generated through the interpretation of the phylogenetic tree will become the foundations for a piece of music inspired by the sculpture in question. This form of music may be referred to as Phylogenetic.
