HTML to MIDI – What does a site sound like?

This site takes a web pages and turns it into a MIDI you can listen to – [via] Link.

Here’s what MAKE sounds like – Link (MID).

I then imported the MIDI file to GarageBand – not a bad way to make music for soundtracks, games or whatever else. Here’s the MP3 – Link (MP3).

  1. I was a coconspirator in this project, but it was written by Alex Baker. Dubbed the World’s Largest Band, it boasts the longest playlist and highest number of members of any musical group in history. The applet makes it’s dope beats by exploiting the musical structure of HTML tags and creating nesting loops which are the audible equivalent to nesting tags. Content is not played, because we are purists, however it is searched for keywords which help define song progression and instrument sets. For further insight into its workings, try to read the source code while listening to the song. Once you have a good idea of what does what you can begin composing songs and posting them on the web!

    Sorry the site is temporarily down, we were not prepared for the high traffic punch of the Make:Blog. We’ll try and make it pretty and accessible soon.
