Earth Plays the Blues

Generative Creative Coding Experiment

Listening to maps

The earth as a song. A generative imagining of what different places sound like.

Random locations are chosen, the nearest town or city is found, and then their colours mapped to chords, while brightness effects the note's length and duration, to create a haunting and emotive soundscape.

Joint winner of the JSConf 2015 Web Audio Hackerthon.
