This musical performance is a continuation of Holobiont: Relics from the Revolution, which is currently shown in the group exhibition Hackers, Makers, Thinkers at Art Laboratory Berlin. The performance features excerpts of compositions from Cyanotoxic Romance, a multi-species musical theater piece centered on love and relationships in times of precarity that further imagines the symbiosis between an intersectional working class and toxic cyanobacteria (known as blue-green algae) in the midst of revolution.

The music composition accompanies the story in envisioning how cyanobacteria and humans could musically expand together symbiotically. Investigating interdisciplinary musical pathways for algorithmic computer music, natural patterns from data of cyanobacteria’s subvisible world are sonifed and interwoven within a shared narrative from a proletarian queer-feminist perspective urging for alternatively prolific closeness and intimacy between humans and nature.
