The Palette

(The Practice Version, for audio file playback.)

If your computer is configured to play .au files and Java, then there is nothing to install or set up to make this applet work. Just wait a few seconds as it loads, and have fun!

See what music you can make by clicking the buttons, adjusting the control bars, and mouse painting in the middle. The music you hear is being composed by a music generation program, based entirely on the values of the controls you see. Sit back and listen or dive in and change the generation.

Access the key for the controls to find out more about how your clicks create and shape the musical output.
