A game developer / musician releases musical snippets as though they were object-oriented code.

http://feeds.wired.com/~r/wired/index/~3/wa8_KyJXKgE/ via Byline Web game developer and musician Gabriel Walsh released his album, The Earthly Frames, Volume 1 in a unique fashion, supplementing his musical content with audio samples for remixing and a series of unique “fragment” files on fifty USB drives for the album’s release. While the fragment files may be enjoyed in isolation, assembling the disparate fragments spins a narrative that is partially autobiographical and partially fictional.

Meanwhile, blog-turned-MTV-rival Pitchfork is making music videos more interactive.
