Any Website Makes Music Using the Code Organ


Code Organ turns web pages into music. It's fun to compare the style and beat of different URLs. The Code Organ algorithm uses letters on the page to find the most used note, selects a major or minor scale, and then based on the total characters on the page, it chooses a synthesizer. There are 10 different drum loops from which one is selected, based on the percentage of characters on the page that are actually musical notes. For example, listen to Neatorama's music

The Codeorgan analyes the 'body' content of any web page and translates that content into music. The Codeorgan uses a complex algorithm to define the key, synth style and drum pattern most appropriate to the page content.

Firstly, the Code Organ scans the page contents and removes all characters not found in the musical scale (A to G), and then analyses the remaining characters to find the most commonly used "note". If this is an even number the page is translated to the major pentatonic scale of that particular note, it becomes minor if there is an uneven number.
