Website Code to Music Translator

I recently came across the Codeorgan which is a little application that turns websites into music. First, let's listen to what this blog sounds like.

Pretty sweet...gams. The fun thing is the song will change slightly if you reload the page or click the link again, but the notes don't, just the rhythm and instrumentation. For some compare & contrast here's the sound of Spaghetti Tree.

Basically, the Codeorgan scans the website's code (right-click, view page source), takes out non-musical letters aka notes (it only uses A-G), and somehow decides what kind of rhythm to plunk on down. I'd love to see something similar that uses information from digital photos, it would be interesting to see if the music reflected the mood of the photograph (dark, bright, frantic, still, etc.).

Give it a try! [via]
