Plant spores turn into freaky critters when placed on a subwoofer

This is Colossal highlights this mesmerizing video by Susie Sie: The Essence Of Sound. She put some lycopodium powder* on a surface on top of a subwoofer and filmed it in slow motion with some exquisite lighting. Some of the sequences remind me of Jupiter's atmosphere. Others of herds of critters moving around.

* Lycopodium powder is a highly flammable substance, "a yellow-tan dust-like powder historically used as a flash powder. It is composed of the dry spores of clubmoss plants, various fern relatives principally in the genera Lycopodium and Diphasiastrum."
