Phonemoneme is an expressive simple-rule-based toy or musical instrument or game, like BallDroppings. It uses both the keyboard and the mouse to play. In it, my handwriting moves through space, interacting with four colored bars. These adjustable bars affect motion in different ways. Each grapheme sounds out its phoneme as it passes over the tan colored bar, whose length affects the pitch.
