If you like music + soft­ware and you haven’t played with the free, Web-based Wol­fram­Tones, you should. I first saw it sev­er­al years ago and I’m even more amazed by it now than I was then. As Web apps go, it’s quite bril­liant. You can cre­ate stun­ning bits of unpre­dictable music and then down­load them or turn them into phone ring­tones. It’s deep fun.

Wol­fram is Stephen Wol­fram, inventor/developer of Math­e­mat­i­ca and author of the book A New Kind of Sci­ence (which is freely avail­able in a Web ver­sion, by the way). Wol­fram­Tones is based on Web Math­e­mat­i­ca.
