Say goodbye to the rest of your workday, because this thing is seriously addictive.Sure your coworkers won't like you after a couple of minutes of this (unless you forward the link to them and try to create orchestral compositions featuring everybody sitting in your area) -- but I say let 'em bitch. This thing is seriously fun and kinda gets your mind running as you start to get the hang of it and begin to come up with actual melodies to work with.The instructions are simple:
- Click on a square.
- Click on some more.
- Now take it to the next level and build chords by creating vertical stacks of squares.
- If you want to really get your Eminence Front on, hold your mouse button down and make like you're a dot matrix printer.
But you know what's really cool about this? Despite it's shiny flash-animated heart -- all this doodad really is (when you get right down to it) is a souped-up piano roll -- one of the oldest ideas in electronic music, dating back to the 1890's.
Not really sure I'd call this sort of thing Steampunk -- but whatever it is, it's a hell of a lot of fun to mess around with.Enjoy!
