Solsym (solar symphony) is a web app for creating and visualizing music in space! In an interactive simulation of the solar system, colorful rings appear around planets when musical notes are played. Solsym runs in your web browser thanks to WebGL and the Web Audio API. You can import a MIDI file or compose from scratch on a blank note canvas, then export and share your creation with the world.
