microcompositions is a musical installation and a collaborative composition, performed in collaboration with some of the microorganisms that live in Windsor’s complex and rare ecosystems.

The video documentation features the steps that lead to the musical composition including gathering the microorganisms from around Windsor and recording their movements under the microscope. A second video presents the musical performance created by the microorganisms in collaboration with Surlin’s object tracking software.
