CODEORGAN

I ran several websites through this. It was fascinating to see how the algorithm selects drum loops and synth patterns based on the identifiable body text. From their "about" page:

The CODEORGAN analyses the body content of any web page and translates that content into music. The codeorgan uses a complex algorithm to define the key, synth style and drum pattern most appropriate to the page content.

Firstly, the CODEORGAN scans the page contents and removes all characters not found in the musical scale (a to g), and then analyses the remaining characters to find the most commonly used 'note'. If this is an even number the page is translated in to the major pentatonic scale of that particular note, it becomes minor if there is an uneven number.

Secondly, the CODEORGAN defines which synthesizer to use. This is based upon the total number characters used on the webpage – there are currently 10 synthesizer effects and the one chosen is picked based upon the percentage of content.

Lastly, the CODEORGAN selects a drum loop based upon the ratio of characters on the page versus the number of characters that are actually musical notes – there are currently 10 different drum loops to pick from.

Go and make beautiful music together.


I especially like what I get when I run my own livejournal through it, but it's intriguing to see the difference between sites like cnn.com and foxnews.com.

"coyoty.net" is just a chord, but "bestiaria.com" sounds very New Age. I'm going to have fun with this.
