Transforming Music

On the last iTunes post, someone was talking about how transforming a work from one presentation to another is not a violation of copyright... for example, if an mp3 could be converted to an image, you could freely share the image you created.On the last iTunes post, someone was talking about how transforming a work from one presentation to another is not a violation of copyright... for example, if an mp3 could be converted to an image, you could freely share the image you created.

While I don't have the sound algorithm/graphic algorithm knowledge to attempt such a task, I did see something related on the discovery channel. Apparently crop circles are mathematical presentations of music as well. Not popular music, or even appealing music, but can be transformed into music.

I wonder what would happen if suddenly you could start sharing images you create instead of music files and de-cryption algorithms were also developed.
