Musical Spiral

This is fantastic!  I found this in a link off of 

There is so many different directions you can go with this!  I love that if you close your eyes, the music has some structure, but it mostly sounds too complicated to understand.  However, if we found a way to graph it, to represent it in another way, we could understand the complexity.  That is why representation of data and ideas is so important.  The right notation can make all the difference in the world. 

What other geometric music could be attempted?  Something that would be very simple geometrically, but complicated musically. 

Is there a three dimensional analogue?  What is the best scale to use?

My favorite is probably this one or this one.

Have fun!
