We've created an interactive beat generating machine.

The tube rack generates the background beat. Tubes contain colorful bacteria, and each color corresponds to a different bass sound. Sound is read left to right.

Bacterial colonies are translated into a step sequencer. Bacteria express fluorescent or chromoproteins. Different colors correspond to different instruments.

Allows user to control cameras and volume.
