In Loop-Copy-Mutate, the Genetic Choir directs our ears towards something urbanites often take for granted: city sounds. Together with laptop artist Robert van Heumen, programmer Stelios Manousakis, and the public, the choir transforms sampled city sounds into voice and music compositions. The project toured the Netherlands in 2016 and 2017 with performances in Amsterdam, Leeuwarden and Eindhoven.
Our year-long Loop-Copy-Mutate concert series is now concluded, but you can still get involved! Learn more about how you can contribute a sound to our Freesound database, lead your own soundwalk and interact with our open-source software.
The première of Loop-Copy-Mutate was held on 2 July 2017 in the new Noord/Zuidlijn metro station beneath Amsterdam Central Station. Watch below a video clip from the performances there.
