Hashbeats

Hashbeats

A personal project with Alphan Gunaydin that experiements with hashtags being music generators and the web audio api within Google Chrome. We worked with SoLoud Music to create all the tracks for the experience. The site pulls in the trending hashtags and a user's hashtag history to allow them to create unique music remixes from their desired hashtags.

To start we created a basic structure that would generate music tracks for each letter within a user's hashtag. We created 26 unique tracks for each group of musical instruments used: drums, bass, atmospheric sounds, and sound effects that would correlated with every letter in the alphabet. The music group tracks were then assigned to a letter's position within each hashtag. Drums were letter #1, bass was letter #2, and so on. Once all groups were accounted for we repeated the group tracks in order. After this was established we created a unique visualization for each letter in the hashtag.
