| Make your own prime music ]
Sadly we must part company here, I must move on to my other work and
leave you to explore the primal sounds on your own. Why not use the primal sounds program and create your
own prime music! If you can think of some clever way to use these prime
sounds (especially in teaching), please
let me know.
A related project I have placed on hold while I do my other work, is a
program to play the factorizations of sequences of numbers. The low primes
are used to determine what percussion instrument to play, the next larger
primes are mapped to one instrument, and the larger ones (modulo some
base) are mapped to a second. If the integer is divisible by a power
(greater than one) of the prime, then that prime's "note" is played
louder. Below is an example.

above (primes less than 17 give percussion, primes from 17 up to 59 are
played using "Orchestra Hit," and the larger primes are played modulo 41 on FX8.
