Thanks to WeezBlog for the link to a very cool site, Typorganism, where I played with all sorts of interesting type-related interactivity in an elegant Flash presentation. There is a visual composer feature which allows you to play with various palettes of sounds, organizing them as you might use a sequencer. If you like what you hear you can even submit it for others to hear. Look for a couple of compositions by 'jaydub'. That's me. =)
There is even a feature where you can upload an image and generate an ascii representation of it, hence the text above. If only I knew Flash well enough to come up with something as brilliant as that site. So very cool.
