(Fairgrounds) | Song of Slime
Song of Slime is an interactive sound installation where humans and slime molds collaborate to create unique music experienced in both human and slime-time.
People explore terrariums containing growing slime molds. Walls display projections of slime mold time-lapses. There are even areas where participants can collaborate with the slime molds to create strange and exciting music.
Slime molds are seeded within the terrariums, creating Slime-Time Sound Stations. Food sources are placed, including oats and plant matter from the region. Over the coming days, the slime mold feeds and grows, its visual data translated into musical keystrokes, a unique melody emanating from each station, collectively resulting in a grand and immersive soundscape.
