The DMF web pageallows you to create music by clicking on a board. Each click causes a peg to pop up and be played. It's very similar to the mechanical mechanism of a music box. As the music is being played a visual presentation of the music is displated that swirls around the position of the mouse.
If you like the piece of music that you have composed, you can copy and paste the score into a text file and replay it again later.
The delight of this page is that is is a combination of visual, aural and interactive elements. You control the sound and the display and both are pleasing.
The DMF page is not a masterpiece of the art world or in any way a great work of art, but very much a nice work to bring up every once and a while for a few minutes of play and relaxation.
