Default Midiflipping

Just come across this intriguing concept on YouTube: take a piece of music and flip all the ups and downs - well, this guy explains it properly:-



And here's another well-known piece, midiflipped:-



The Fur Elise sounds familiar but strange at the same time, doesn't it?
I wonder if anybody else has comments, examples or interest in this process.

Interesting concept. I could see it being used as a composition tool playing things inverted to get new ideas. I guess with midi you could apply all sorts of mathematical formulas to a piece to see the results.

Yes, that's true. It could just be another step in the creative process, rather like Eno's Stuck-in-the-Studio box of suggestion cards.

(Here are the cards, slightly over-explained, for anyone who hasn't heard of them):
