Blip is an interesting app that lets you see what you're listening to—or even draw it. Perhaps a bit of explanation is in order.

With Blip, you're given an area to draw in, and the tools to execute your work of art. Once you draw on this canvas, the magic begins. The application interprets your drawing and converts it into sound. Each region in your drawing represents a particular sound, with the length and pitch of that sound being a function of where in your picture a given point lies. You can complete the drawing of your masterpiece before you pull the trigger on the app, or you can keep adding to your picture while Blip plays what's already on the screen. Either way, it's pretty likely that you're going to end up with a one-of-a-kind musical creation.

Blip is a free Windows application.
