This work is a new performance system that uses a bacteria propagation model. It is a kind of board game that creates music, in which the performer reproduces bacteria that produce sounds and wins by invading the other participant’s colony. The game also has a meta purpose in that considering and refining strategies to win the game forms audio displays. This work is very thought-provoking in the way in which it redefines the experience of enjoying music.
