Created by Belarusian composer Ales Tsurko, ‘microscale‘ is a music album generated from random Wikipedia articles where letters are the sequencer steps and the track titles are regular expressions that switch the steps on and off.
“The concept behind microscale is to show that through transforming one media (text) into another media (music), the meaning can be transformed – the article has its own meaning, but the music generated from the article has a completely different meaning”. – Ales Tsurko
The physical/digital version is available as an individually rendered CDR and one-time rendered download from bandcamp, and the web version is also hackable – the regular expressions, samples, tempo and other parameters can be edited or replaced – allowing microscale to be used as an instrument and sequencer for the listener’s own music.
