Third-year design media arts student Ivana Dama’s audiovisual project consists of a microscope and slides serving as musical instruments. She triggers specific sounds by changing the parameters of the microscope’s camera and layering the output with other sound effects to create music. (Niveda Tennety/Daily Bruin)

Student uses microscopes to get closer look at potential for music creation

Ivana Dama is innovating what can constitute a musical instrument, using a microscope and human brain tissue in her latest performance. The third-year design media arts student gave a presentation of her audiovisual project in an improvisational performance at Studio 106 L.A. Read more...
