I have just begun a new collaboration with Peter Bennett of the Interaction and Graphics Research Group at Bristol University, and Robert Arbon and Alex Jones of the School of Chemistry.  We are working to make visual and sonic representations of computational models of biomolecular dynamics.  In turn, we hope to make the visualisations and sonifications into a musical/visual work of art, to be presented by us and the Ligeti Quartet at Bristol University on 28th May 2019.

Our collaboration is supported by the Jean Golding Institute Seed Corn Award:
