For my MUS 220C project, I created a web application that sonifies Twitter "Tweet" updates into a continuous musical piece (Song + tweet = Sweet). The tweets are sonified into wav files using Festival TTS and played back on using python on a Django server while a song that I wrote using Garageband + my Korg Triton Extreme 88-key keyboard is played back as the background track. Unfortunately, I do not own a server as of now, so I cannot provide the full functionality of my project (the tweets cannot be sonified remotely). You can, however, view the application without the sonification of tweets here [Music requires Safari/Chrome/Firefox + HTML5]

General architecture for 220C Project: Flash + Festival TTS + Django
