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.
