Sonifikation der Wikipedia-Diskussionsseite über den Eintrag “Musik”

Mention of rhythm in the introduction, perhaps

All versions of the discussion page of the Wikipedia article about “Music” from 1st August 2011 (Obama agreed with the Republicans on raising the debt limit) until 14th January 2013 (day of the composition).

Each letter is applied to a specific pitch by chance (in low register). These pitches are played with pulse waves, each word is considered as a chord, the chords follow each other extremely fast. Between each page version, there is a 1.3 second rest.

In that period of time, the discussion page was edited 72 times. This gives rise to a kind of developing variations form.

One of the threads in the talk about music on Wikipedia was entitled “Mention of rhythm in the introduction, perhaps”
