I am blown away by Andre Michelle’s awesome visual music synthesizer, an instant d-i-y way for anybody to make charming syncopated Steve Reich-ish music that repeats endlessly. The more boxes you touch with your cursor, the more complex the tune becomes. If you get tired of a tune, continue to build it, listening as it evolves. (Also try clicking on the pale, tiny words under the synthesizer screen for other of Andre’s intriguing “studies”, or find them on the main menu.)
The synthesizer is the antidote to the workmen hammering outside my office window, providing a gorgeous meditative background sound that, along with ear plugs, blocks out the pounding on walls going on around me, and is perfectly conducive to working.
This is going on my bookmarks bar.
