About 13 years ago, I wrote a program that converts images into music. While not to everyone's taste, and actually pretty crappy about 20% of the time, the music produced was recognizable as such.
Well. After a dozen years of actually paying attention to what I'm doing and learning all sorts of programmy stuff, I'm just now finishing up a rewrite in C# (the original was Delphi) and...it sounds like crap. The conversion it performs is much too accurate, or something.
I am now going in adding features to make it sloppier. Sigh.
If I remember rightly, one of the puzzles in the Perplex City game was a picture which, when put through a processor to convert pictures to sound, produced the right answer - personally, I couldn't make anything out of what I heard when I did it.
I'll try to remember to look it out tonight.
EDIT - or even a quick look now - here[^] - the solution will be towards the end.
Just say the music it creates is experimental or avant-garde and you won't have to change a thing There's even a 'music' genre called noise and the idea is for the listener to NOT have a pleasant listening experience. Use mankinds weirdness in your favour here
