MEX Notes: The real sound of Twitter

  • Source article: The real sound of Twitter
  • MEX note: BBC Radio 4's Today programme has an interview with Sam Harman, a student from Dorset in the UK, exploring the fascinating application he created to capture the sound of Twitter. Harman's system captures random tweets and converts the letters and punctuation into musical notes, playing a stream of music generated entirely by the ebb and flow of the world's Twitter conversations.

    It touches on some of the themes explored in MEX Pathway #9 ('Enhance the audible dimension of mobile user experience'), looking at how sound can become an interface for data.
