Made the Same Way: A repetitive process of branching

Posted by , on 19 May 2023

The fifth episode of Made the Same Way, a podcast produced by the Wellcome-funded Human Developmental Biology Initiative, features Lucía Cabriales Torrijos discussing human lung development with performer Beth (aka BABYFLXKCO).

At the end of the episode, the pair collaborate on an original piece of music inspired by their conversation.

It’s amazing how there are options if someone is born premature.


About the participants

Lucía is a biophysicist who loves to understand how the cells that make up our bodies perceive and respond to mechanical forces. For the last couple of years, her research has focussed on mimicking foetal breathing movements to understand how these affect cell functions (differentiation) in the formation of the lung. Apart from science, Lucía is interested in art and loves going to museums, the theatre and the cinema.

Beth, aka Babyflxcko, is a 23 year old female singer, songwriter and producer creating soulful jazz, R&B instrumentals and soulful melodies. Brought up in a musical family, she always had a passion for music, writing her first song at just 12 years old. But it wasn’t until she hit 19, living alone in London that she decided to pursue and create her own music full-time.

She released her first EP, Emotions, in 2021 after working alongside other musicians developing musical skills on a project with Reform Radio called Soundcamp 2021. Her musical influences include Jhene Aiko, Billie Eilish and Amy Whinehouse, just to name a few. She is known for doing shows in Manchester, Sheffield and local areas.

Beth has also recently released a new single, Inhalando Y Exhalando (the original music that she created as part of this podcast) on all streaming platforms. You can listen and download here.
