An introduction to Typatone at Gray Area's inaugural Art & Technology Festival.
Along with the desire to be original Typatone relies on the foundation of a lot of amazing existing art. I try to express this and contextualize the project in talk for Gray Area's inaugural festival (above). Of the many art projects that inspired Typatone one such project caught our eye: Typatune, a typewriter by Alex Rose that generates sound instead of letters, now almost 100 years old!
The decision of which note applies to which letter is carefully assigned by Lullatone. The most frequent occuring letters in the English language are applied to melodic notes, less frequent bass tones, and least frequent accent notes. Based on cryptography analysis at Cornell University.
