Tosho Iwai

Electroplankton

Game Description: In this sea, you'll encounter ten unique species of tiny Electroplankton that respond to your touch and voice to create unforgettable sounds and melodies. Interacting with this wide and wild variety of Electroplankton is as simple as sliding your stylus across the Touch Screen. Toy with Tracy plankton and listen to their music as they swim along the lines you draw. Clap your hands or use your voice to lead a microscopic synchronized swimming team of Nanocarp. There are ten fascinating plankton to play with in all! The latest work by world-renowned Japanese media artist Toshio Iwai, Electroplankton bursts to life exclusively on the Nintendo DS.

Electroplankton – Review

Described by artist-creator Tosho Iwai as a mixture of a microscope, a tape recorder, a synthesizer and a Nintendo Entertainment System, the program (which is the safest thing I can call it) makes as much sense as that mission statement seems to. The best way to approach it is to think that it's an experience to be felt with the senses the DS is able to cater to, by its use of touchscreen and button interaction with graphical elements to create sound.
