Code Organ

Code Organ takes the code of any website and turns it into music.

Code Organ works by choosing the key of the song based on how many times the letter designating that note appears in a web page’s source code, using a minor key if it appears an odd number of times or major if it’s even. It then picks one of ten synthesiser sounds based on which characters appear the most times in a page. Finally, the algorithm decides which drum loop to use by weighing the ratio of text characters to actual notes.

Artifacting ends up sounding like this.
