Cubism is designed to be a simple, colorful, fun and (slightly) useful way to visualize the music in your iTunes library.
Quit iTunes if it is running
Drag the Cubism icon to the folder labeled "Compositions" inside of the disk image (or copy it to ~/Library/Compositions)
To use Cubism:
Start playing some music
In the menu bar go to View > Visualizer and choose Cubism from the menu of visualizers
Go to View > Turn On Visualizer
While using Cubism:
Press the "I" key to show track information
Press the "H" key to show help (admittedly not very exciting at the moment)
The colored cubes represent the sound levels with bass on the left and treble on the right
The small artwork cube visually displays the time remaining in the current track moving from left to right as the song progresses
The current track time is shown on the left
The time remaining in the current track is shown to the right
What's new in Cubism
Fixed issues that caused track information not to display when changing tracks
Moved display of help to the upper right corner
Added hours remaining
Currently iTunes ignores user input while the visualizer is displayed; therefore, the h and i keys do not work to display help and information. Track information still displays when a track is paused and while changing tracks.

Colorful, pulsating blocks.... pretty unsophisticated, gets old pretty quick.
Of course, there's G-Force at $20 plus $15 annual update fee....now that one's incredibly interesting. But Cubism is a freebie, so I'll not complain too much.
DiscoBrick at $10 isn't bad
