AEco.5o

AEco.5o is a sound composition generated by an ecosystemic algorithm that learns how to sing by interpreting its ancestry. Up to 15 voices can live in the ecosystem and the behaviour of each is based on its interpretation of an ancestral landscape, a place where the knowledge of their predecessors is stored. Once a voice dies, instead of being erased it goes into the ancestral landscape. The only way for the current individuals to learn how to live in this digital ecosystem is by interpreting the landscape. AEco.5o uses a bespoke system called Ancestral Ecosystem (AEco).
