Nathaniel Virgo

Residence: Tokyo, Japan

Nathaniel Virgo is a complex systems scientist, who applies techniques from physics, cybernetics and Artificial Life to research the origins of life on Earth. In his spare time he applies some of these same techniques to create music and sound art. Sometimes this takes the form of short code pieces in SuperCollider; very occasionally it takes the form of a live performance, in which he attempts to “play” these complex, chaotic dynamical systems as musical instruments.
