Tweeting Machines is an interactive, robotic rhythm generator.
Driven by an easy-to-use syntax, it utilises the flexibility of the Twitter platform to trigger custom-designed mechanical percussion.
As much an experiment into code-driven music as rhythmical interactivity, Tweeting Machines is a sandpit for exploring the work of mechanical rhythm generation.
Its operating modes allow for:
- Work for solo Tweet
- Duet for Tweets
- Trio for Tweets and Markov Chain
Details of the score syntax can be found in the language specification.
