When we posted the assignment of "musical instrument", with great deal of concern we expected that many entries might tend to be similar. Fortunately, our worries were blown away by awesome content variety, and we were genuinely amused. The inspiration was great too.

The aim of the contest was to have fun, therefore we prioritized amusive quality, rather than just evaluate the technical level and audio content. We have well balanced our winners selection, based on these criteria.

This entry was superior to the most "draw"-like programs, effectively combining the sound and visual along the grid lines. The arrangement of loops, standby time, tempo and parameters is truly well done.
