About Tune Status

This is an experiment in the use of real-world data for automated music composition. Transport For London have made a large amount of data available for developers to use in their own software (TFL Open Data). Tune Status uses javascript to generate sequences of musical notes for each of the tube lines, the choice of notes and shape of the waveform being influenced by the status data from TFL. The Web Audio API is used to synthesise the audio. Tune Status works best with the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
