Forester v1.2 by Leafcutter John

I'm a fan of electronic musician Leafcutter John, and I found a piece of software for Mac users called Forester v1.2 which you can download for free at The Wire's website. With it, you create a musical "forest" using a CD in the drive- basically small samples that you can then proceed to wander and explore, creating some really cool sounds. I first did it with Brian Eno's Before and After Science with some cool sounding results.

ADDENDUM: Ooh, I just discovered Forester v1.3 on his website that allows you to record your "forests". Cool!
