Phil- I dig music with compelling sounds, and I generally feel the 
urge to move my body to music I dig.  One can use whatever 
test one wants to hold up some music as "genuine," and the question "does 
it draw people out onto the dance floor?" is just as valid as any other in 
this regard.

But then if the point of the acid test is to demonstrate the strengths 
of a visual programming paradigm for the rapid implementation of various  
dsp techniques to generate music, I'd say the OP's test is quite a fitting 
and effective "Hello World" for Pd.
