New Organs of Creation programme explains further details about the project.

New Organs of Creation presents a hypothetical development of the human larynx (voice box), using tissue engineering, to extend the ability of the voice as a transformational instrument. The resulting voice attempts to enable a singer to talk directly to the body’s cells. With this voice, the singer performs an anthem expressing a national identity for the future of what many are calling “Britain's divided nation”. 
Research has shown that sound can help direct the eventual form of stem cells. For instance, low sound frequencies in the range of 50Hz to 100Hz can help coax stem cells into bone cells, instead of other forms such as heart or skin cells. The synthetic larynx is designed to produce these low sound ranges, taking anatomical inspiration from the koala, cat and a man with a record-breaking bass voice.
With a voice that can reach these frequencies, a new anthem (composer Matt Rogers, sound designer David Sheppard) aims to go beyond national divides, sung by a voice (mezzo-soprano, Louise Ashcroft) able to talk to us on a cellular level and change the state of the physical world.
In the development of the piece, Burton Nitta has recorded public voices and voice experts from around the country. These discussions ask for visions of where we are heading as a nation and explore the power of the voice as an instrument for change.

New Organs of Creation is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and commissioned by Science Gallery London.
