Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – Can Bacterium Compute?

Bach, the Universe & Everything

Bach Cantata: Erschallet, ihr Lieder (‘Resound, ye songs, ring out, ye strings’) BWV172

With Professor Susan Stepney, Director, York Cross-Disciplinary Centre for Systems Analysis, University of York

The science: From smartphones to desktops, most people think of computers as being based on silicon. But what about slime mould? Bacteria? Can they computer? There are many types of non-conventional computing, and one of the leading figures in this field, Professor Susan Stepney, explores how harnessing this power might lead to exciting new developments in the near future.

The music: This cantata marks Pentecost, and the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles, even including a duet between the Holy Spirit and the ‘soul’. It’s therefore an upbeat, celebratory piece with festive instrumentation including three trumpets and timpani.


Bach, the Universe and Everything is Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s very own Sunday service for inquiring and curious minds; a place to bond with music lovers and revel in the wonders of science.
