Has anybody ever played around with trying to create an image in the spectrograph just for fun?

I just found this article and thought it was pretty interesting. I downloaded Metasynth and it's pretty cool.. You can upload any image and it creates a wav file for it.. Wondering if it would work to play the wav file back into smaart? I'd try it but I can't save the wav file unless I buy Metasynth for $600!

This capture was made via a loop-thru on my laptop's soundcard.

Thank you very much for the links Sir.

Here's the Soundfile generated with coagula, if someone is interested.

Please rename it from .zip to .wav (it is not compressed, just renamed)

Josh has been doing this for a few years. There are several "sounds" floating around....."EAW Smaart, Welcome to class" or something like that,....Dr. Don and his caricature, and his latest is the Rational logo. I played with it for about 5 minutes, couldn't get it working and lost interest quickly, but always planned to go back to it later. Man the time flies.
