Hexy

Virtual musical instrument

‚Äč

This virtual musical instrument organizes pitched sound in a hexagonal grid.  WIth a computer mouse, users can activate the instrument by clicking with the grid.  A circle of light appears, colored based on the hexagon that was clicked, and sounding the appropriate pitch associated with that gridspace.  The longer the mouse is held down, the larger the circle grows, encompassing more and more hexagons.  The more light that is in a hexagon's space, the louder it plays its sound.
