I have been working on a music machine that would only use redstone circuitry and noteblocks, and would not require for the listener to move around. There are several really nasty problems on the way, some of which do have ways to work around, but unfortunately they also cause too much redstone activity.
Having a stable and accurate main clock was one, but with the new repeater-block based clocks and the auto-start circuit I engineered, that problem is now tackled. Here is a link to the Minecraft forums thread about the circuit, it has links to more screenshots and technical description about how it works: http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=1020&t=259809
The remaining obstacles are related to the random occasional timing jitter of redstone torches, and making 1 torch delay long pulses to get through the one last torch before hitting the note block. I may have to change the design so that it does not need to have so short pulses, but that will then double the amount of note blocks required.
I have high hopes that a source code fix for the torch timing jitter (already shown in GetSatisfaction site) will end up in the client. That would then leave only the short pulse propagation problem to be solved.
Even though only a picture of the main clock prototype is uploaded, there is already plenty of other prototype circuitry. Unfortunately, those other parts have not yet been converted to use the new repeater blocks, so it would be pointless to upload obsolete screenshots. Coming Soon(tm)... ;)
