Abstract

TwitterRadio is an interactive installation designed to explore the social world of Twitter through music. The idea behind this project is to access the musical domain to display information about the latest trends and news. The system automatically generates tonal compositions that are supposed to match the emotional contents of the tweets, as well as their frequency. TwitterRadio, being an audio-only interactive system, offers more passive enjoyment compared to traditional Interactivity demos. However, the interaction with TwitterRadio can span across a couple of levels, according to their involvement degree. Visitors can limit themselves to listening to the generated music and experience the tweets mood, or enter new hashtags.
