«Danish Poem Sonification» by Jason_SK

on 25 Apr'20 09:58 in sonification

Hello!

Guldhornene is one of my favourite poems by Adam Oehlenschläger So I decided to sonificate it!

SC reads, posts the poem from the txt file word by word in real time and converts the letters to numbers (via ascii). Chooses a random letter from every word and maps the value for frequency, pan etc.

You will need the txt file for it You can download it from here! -->> https://github.com/JasonSKK/SuperCollider-poem-Sonification

I Hope you will like it! Thanks!

Jason SK
