Renacer addresses the natural cycles of birth and rebirth and looks into a possible future at the dawn of a biotechnological revolution. Francisco Deco’s lyrics open up multifaceted visions of existence where death and transience take a back seat to the power of germination and regeneration. In many of Alberto Carretero’s works, biological processes serve as inspiration and blueprint for his music. Using artificial intelligence and membrane computing, he develops algorithmic compositions that simulate the growth and behavior of living organisms and translate them into sonic narratives. On the one hand, life within a cell and its membranes is made audible by means of sonification. On the other hand, the personal interpretation of these biological processes creates a symbiosis with libretto and images, and from this in turn new musical gestures, sounds and forms. Electronics and video are closely and mutually connected to the bio-inspired compositional processes. Mutation, mitosis, meiosis, tissue formation, reproduction, and nerve connections open a musical reflection process and become a metaphor of genesis: birth, rebirth, and creation itself.
