Beautiful snowflake catching music generator

A while back, my friend Rich Vreeland, AKA Disasterpeace, made a Flash game called January where you catch snowflakes on your tongue and each plays a soft, pining note. Rich has been busy lately making music for other video games, but he just pushed out a big update to January. The new version trims down on the storyline in favor of a more capable music generator. It has auto-pilot functionality, a selection of keys to choose from, a pentatonic mode, and the ability to save your generated compositions as MIDI files.

Check out the new version of January and the original version.


  1. Spectacular!  It’s nice to actually just have it running in the background of my browser.  Amazing what expressions can come out of an 8-bit resolution.

  2. Very nice! Reminds me of software a Japanese programmer artist made that was sold through Voyager, showing fireworks IIRC.
