This album travels through sci-fi jazz, avant rock, electronic soundscapes, ambient textures, and nightmare industrial collages. Synthetic biology is the artificial introduction of DNA from different organisms into a host organism to program cells for a particular function. The music emphasizes this juxtaposition of natural and artificial elements that are in competition with one another and continuously evolving.

The artwork includes colorful stills from this imaginary synthetic biology film."
