Elektroplankton

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Electroplankton is a piece of software that revolves around creating music
[...] Tapping, rubbing or dragging a plankton (or pressing A or Select)
creates a unique kind of melody, rhythm or noise. [...] And that's all
there is to Electroplankton. Certain planktons have minor game-like
aspects; Hanenbow, for instance, allows you to adjust the leaves of a tree
to create an "optimum" sound and cause a flower to bloom. Beyond that,
though, the real point of Electroplankton is to experiment with sound and
simply enjoy the music you create.
