The T2 builds a loop of sounds that vary using an equation that determines the number of bacteria that are likely to be infected by multiple phage. The multiplicity of infection variable in this case is determined by a light level. Some of the sounds decay into high frequencies and some into low frequencies but all of the notes eventually decay into silence
