Twitter Music

Projected in a music performance for Meehan/Perkins Marimba duo. Scott Lindroth, composer and professor of music experimented with the sonification of data on twitter messages collected by analyst Patrick Herron. The Twitters collected shared the term “osama” and were captured in May 2011, less than two weeks after the assassination of Osama bin Laden, thus bringing topical focus to the Twitter messages.
