Feel Good Friday – Matrix Music

I’m sending you away from this web site again for Feel Good Friday to HERE.

“But, but, it’s just a grid! ”

It’s a musical grid, a matrix of music.  Try clicking on individual blocks from left to right.  The lower on the grid, the lower the note (I create a base drum beat on the bottom line) and it plays for you.

    Love it! You can just fall into it and zone out for a little while.

    UBER AWESOME! Try filling a whole vertical row. Or whole horizontal row. What fun!

    This is my favourite Feel Good Friday ever. 🙂

  • PrincessSimmi May 22, 2011, 5:22 am

    @ Twik- I am! We could totally put some lyrics to it, mix it up with an iPhone or iPad and sell it…

  • SciFiLeslie May 23, 2011, 9:03 am

    What fun!

    @Twik and Princess: how about seeing, er, hearing what your name or initials “sound” like? This is sooooo addictive! My boys and I played with it for nearly an HOUR last Friday! Now that they’re out of school for the summer, I made sure they could access it from their computers, keep ’em busy for a while…

    That’s actually a virtual version of a Tenori-On, a Japanese instrument that I saw a British comedian called Bill Bailey play live on stage. I’ve coveted a real life one ever since, but according to Ebay a second hand one cost about $700. A great bit in the show was when Bill spoke about the swastika, and how it was perceived as a symbol of terror and hatred, if you programme it into the Tenori-On, it suddenly becomes a lovely little ditty. Nazis 0, Tenori-On 1!

    I let my 4-year-old loose on this thing. He had a blast.
