refreq is a radically customizable music player. I mean radically. You can load music files into it, or images (bitmaps, img-s, png-s). When you load a song, the program analyzes the track and draws its frequency spectrum. After the program has processed the file fed into it, you can convert the spectral image or bitmap back into music.

It is at this point that the project gets really interesting. Once you have the image of the track, it is just up to you what you do with it. You can play around with the timeline, or play the sound from another aspect. The track becomes totally transparent to you: not only can you see exactly where individual notes are, but the harmonies will also be visible to you.

Moreover, you can rotate the player, so that the notes will be the same, but the harmonies will be different.
