The field of Artificial Life has spawned a diversity of new artistic media and sources of inspiration. There now exists a substantial body of work belonging to the canon of A-life art, and a growing number of artists/scientists who are increasingly active in the field. "The Sound Gallery" adds a new artwork to this lineage, drawing its inspiration from other works of A-Life art, but also making some notable advances. It achieves interactive and adaptive behaviour in novel ways, making use of reconfigurable hardware technology that (as far as I am aware) has not before been appropriated for artistic ends.
