The piece 5-HT_five levels to zero is based on the structural qualities of the neurotransmitter serotonin. The dynamics of the molecule will be improvised and performed live in a dynamic and counterbalanced noise act that deals with both the balances as well as the imbalances inherent, resulting in chaotic states caused by disruption of this unit in the brain. For the piece, TMS has created a score that captures the dynamics of the musical composition. The audio will be accompanied by a projection of a visual score, based on the shape of the serotonin molecule displayed together with a timer. This enables the audience to follow the progression of the piece, which is divided into five dynamic levels, gradually counting down time.
