Seaquence – Growin’ groove in a Petri dish

Seaquence is a freshly-launched iOS app by Okaynokay, that allows users to compose electronic music by spawning and shaping a Petry dish of rudimentary lifeforms. Opening to a 2D view of an aquatic environment, a sonar-like PING ripples outwards from an origin point across four nested concentric circles – both demarcating a territory and establishing a tempo. Pushing the lime green '+' button plunks a new creature into the mix, opening up a step sequencer on which you can swipe in strings of notes (and set their time signature relative to the master tempo) and watch the creature’s physiology shift accordingly in real time. Once its spawned, it will circle – quite literally tracing its loop.
