What is MEND?

MEND was started by Joseph Dugan in 2021. Over the last year he has compiled a small team to work on a project that finds itself at the intersection between multiple artistic disciplines and multiple fields of study.


MEND is a composers catalog of Antarctic animal vocalizations and translations of them into musical language.
