Thought this was interesting ...

An interesting visualization of Piano Music makes use of the repetitive design of the piano, 12 semitones on black and white keys, and maps it onto a spiral where each ring of the spiral indicates another octave...



Visit the website and watch more. It's pretty cool!

There is a piece of software called o-generator that uses a similar circle to help visualise and place sounds/loops within 1 revolution. Not so flexible as say a linear piece of music software for composition and it is fairly pre-set with loops, beats, sounds etc.
But interesting that he circle/visual thing being used for music - pitch & rhythm.
