RealTime sonification of MBTA

My final project at Berklee College of Music, a study in creating generative music with the assistance of open available data sources.

In this study, I designed and created an application that generates and synthesizes music by reading and scaling a real time feed of the locations of the trains in the city of Boston.

This project was comprised of two parts. A command line application written in Java retrieves information from the MBTA every ten seconds, and writes a file of relevant information. A separate program uses the relevant information to compose and synthesize music in real time.
