The Listening Machine
 / 

Just tweeted this, but I like it so much it bears repeating here: The Listening Machine, a 24/7 stream of music generated live, based on the activity of 500 Twitter users in the UK.

Here’s the trick: it’s actually good music. In fact I think it’s beautiful—though keep in mind I’m a huge Steve Reich fan. I could listen to this for hours. I probably will.

Glance down at the little visualizations of the music’s inputs. It’s so easy to make a project like this opaque and alien…most of them are. Here, they made it clear and lovely instead. Bravo.
