The computer circuits made of slime mould

When electrical impulses are sent to the mould, its response is measured in current and translated back to a piano using electromagnets.

BBC Click's LJ Rich spoke with Professor Eduardo Miranda of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research to find out more.
