Wish You Were Here Poster

Pink FloydA good music lover always needs some musical paraphernalia. Goodbye Blue Sky just hooked up with AllPosters.com so that means I get to plug their stuff and make a couple of wooden nickels if my wonderful readers buy things from that site, woo!

So, I’m starting out with one of the greatest album covers of all time: Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here. I’ve sat and stared at this poster for probably many hours over the course of my life. I don’t even do any drugs and I still stare at the thing.

Go check it out.

Tone Matrix

My friend sent me a link to this awesome little flash application. It’s called a tone matrix. It’s easy to see what it does when you start clicking it.

The idea is that you activate squares by clicking them. A constant left-to-right wave, or line, moves across the board and each activated square plays a note. That’s really all there is to it. Simple and awesome.

Reading the upper left square pays off too. You can deactivate every square with the space bar, you can also copy and paste your creation.

Update: I didn’t think you could save your creations after closing your browser, but you can! Once you copy one you like, you can paste it into a text file and save it for later. Just reopen your browser, go to the site, click inside the matrix to move the focus to the game, then paste it, sweet!

Here’s one I just made in a couple minutes. Not anything great, but you get the idea.

Let’s hear your creation. Paste your audio treats below in the comments. I’ll give them all a listen!
