We were inspired by the functional composition talks given by Chris Ford.
What it does
Plays music composed with overtone by scraping an online database of guitar songs and translating the song into arrays of pitches and durations.
How we built it
Web interface for the chat that connects to a Python server. The user's messages are analyzed with Microsoft's sentiment API and based on the response the environment music is changed accordingly.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating music with no prior experience.
What we learned
Building a server from scratch
What's next for SentiTones
Integrating it with more instruments, songs and online chats
