Inspiration

Why always visualise data with graphs when you can use music to feel the data!

What it does

StockTunes gets the data of your favourite stock for the past 3 months and composes a good sounding tune out of it

How we built it

We used HTML, python, ffmpeg and many other awesome technologies. The process is as follows

  • Get the name of the stock and crawl the web to get the stock data
  • Preprocess the crawled data
  • Compose a tune with the data with notes
  • Apply a sound font on the notes to get a tune and mix it up to make it sound pleasing
  • Put it in the cloud so that it can be accessed from anywhere
  • Use a website to play the music generated by your stocks and visualize them beautifully

Challenges we ran into

Converting the data into sound is easy but converting the sound into music rather than noise was a really interesting challenge to work on

Accomplishments that we are proud of

We created some cool sounding tunes from the otherwise boring numeric stock data!

What we learned

We learned so many new technologies for playing around with music files and what makes music sound so good

What's next for StockTunes

Add lyrics to the songs with relevant data ;P
