Biotope is a project initiated by composer and multimedia artist Pierre Estève that focuses on the study of mathematics underlying nature.

As this subject is extremely broad, the project initially focused on the real-time generation of a digital landscape using sound. First came a phase of research, both in sound analysis and in algorithmy to model the living. Then, a program was created using Max MSP Jitter to analyze the incoming sound, standardize the information thus captured and transmit it to several mathematical models that display on the screen a land, growing trees, etc
