ToneMatrix: Your Amazing Time-Waster of the Day

The developer describes ToneMatrix as a "simple sinewave synthesizer triggered by an ordinary 16step sequencer. Each triggered step causes a force on the underlaying wave-map, which makes it more cute." It's the work of Andre Michelle, and it's flat-out amazing in its addictive simplicity. If he converts this to a mobile app, he'll make a pot of money.

I found this one courtesy of my National Catholic Register colleague Simcha Fisher, the irritant who helps little grains of sand become wondrous pearls, whether we want to or not.

Thanks for sharing it! At the following address, you'll see a ToneMatrix "Jesus Loves Me" grid I just did. It wasn't until recent years that I realized the song was in the pentatonic scale.

Almost all portions of the song can be heard on different time scales. The first two phrases are fastest. The first three chorus phrases ("Yes, Jesus loves me...") are half the tempo, and the last chorus phrase ("The bible tells me so") is half that tempo again.
