Music makes the people come together!

What it does

Makes a web-browser playable song from a game's worth of pitch data!

How we built it

We used the Stattleship API to fetch:

  • Chicago Cubs postseason games from 2016
  • Pitch data for each game

Then we created two music tracks, one for the top and one for the bottom of the inning.

In each track, we map a pitch to a note based on speed, zone, and type.

For that game we generated Tone.js json file that had the song data in i so that it can be played in the browser.

Hosted on Netlify!

Challenges we ran into

Too many ideas.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It sounds like insect music.

What we learned

Pitches are very pitchy.

What's next for Musial

Better algorithm to determine notes, perhaps using chord progressions.
