Evolutionary Musical Installation

The Bacterial Orchestra is an art installation consisting of microphones, processors and speakers. The installation is divided up into cells, and each cell has a specific program for responding to sound picked up by its microphone and transforming it into sound it emits from its speakers. Cells that aren’t successful “die off” and are replaced by cells with a different program. Sounds really interesting: I’d particularly like to see what happens when you try to use it as an instrument. [wmmna]
