text2haydn

an audiovisual installation
text2haydn translates text-feeds by twitter users about joseph haydn into samples of pieces by haydn.
the method is simple: for each character of the text a corresponding sound snippet is played. so whenever for example the sentence contains the letter "r" a sample of a haydn piece where the sound "r" is sung gets played. the maybe following vowel "o" would accordingly trigger a sung "o". and so on.



the installation will be shown at the rotunde in oberwart (austria) from june 13th to september 27th 2009.
