Put the LEDs under a glass table, the LDRs above it, and dump ants on the table controlling some oscillators.

These are manufactured vactrols so y'know the are encased in plastic but that's an interesting idea

You could roll some DIY ones per Bipolar's idea (hey dude, nice to see you here!) to actuate the LEDs in the manufactured ones for two generations of sloppy light erosion action.
I have no suggestion for software.

Do what Croch said. Or just link them all together to turn your porch light on and off.

If I wanted to roll my own I wouldn't have bought a 100 of them lol.. although I have tons of leds and photo resistors but that's besides the point!

yeah. building vactrols gets to be a pain in the arse after a while.

Meanwhile I'm building this crazy four sided tremolo thing which uses LED's to make quartz crystals glow, while simultaneously activating the photoresistors.

Four sided? Do you just mean four channels?

Crystals.. sounds like sum hippie shit?

Four oscillators.
So, four tremolotations
Although I do plan to have two outputs, such that you can run it with two trems on each output, or all four on both.

hippie shit is pretty much exactly what I am going for.

Make it work, then name it? I like my trem-alone.
I think trying to quantify music is one of the biggest wastes of time in the world, like discussing your favourite colour or deity or pizza topping. People should realise that and get on with their life.
