Drawing or Sculpting with music - a new invention??

Every classical raaga has a characteristic auditary pattern that distinguishes it from other raagas. Regardless of the singer or the krithi, the raaga is readily identifiable whether it is sung or played. So if the vibrations / frequencies / embellishments can be captured by a stylus, and the pattern traced in 2 dimensions, it should ideally result in the same picture. Theoretically this should be possible. Kinda like the patterns created by Windows Media player when playing a song.

This can be easily taken to 3 dimensions by tracing on a sphere - to begin with. I wonder if the deities envisioned for different ragas were in some way using the same concept?
