If you did not know already, there is current trend of posting YouTube movies that demonstrate the qualities of Microsoft's recently released SongSmith software, by feeding the musiccomposition software the notes or lyrics of well-known songs.

Naturally, it did not take long before Songsmith was exploited for sonification purposes, as it became mashed up with data values, mapped as music notes. The interesting, relaxing results of some datasets dealing with "plummeting stocks, war casualties and other doomsday statistics" can be admired here [fromthedeskofthemayor.blogspot.com], or simply watched in High Quality below.
