About The CultureCode Initiative about

Open data and hacking have played a critical role in CultureCode projects and strategies, engendering new and interesting ways for digital and cultural communities to work together. To showcase some of the possibilities with data, CultureCode commissioned an artists and a creative technologist to compose a visualisation and sonification of one of the data sets released for the pilot project in the North East. The result was the incredible, Global Sequencer by Ed Carter and Matt Jarvis. It uses animal sightings from the EYE project (part of Tyne & Wear Museums & Archives) to create a music sequencer where the melodies are created by the datasets and the order and speed of playback can be controlled by a performer:
