Whitney Music Box

This is fun to play with:
Whitney Music Box -- a musical realization of the motion graphics of John Whitney as described in his book "Digital Harmony."

My favourite variation is var. 17 - hand cranked. It's pentatonic.

[Pentatonic means 'five tones.' The five black keys on a piano. On another instrument, you could play G-A-B-D-E. Sounds 'oriental.']

Var. 6 - microtones sounds like ghosts. ooooooooooooooooooo

I played with that site for about 10 minutes, and I was doing an experiment to see when Jason would complain about the noise. He never did. That man has the ability to turn his ears off.
