Type representations in music
0

Hi,

I am new here and hope that I am posting in the correct place.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any musical representations of typefaces? For example, has some composed music representing the flow of a specific font etc?

Any info appreciated!

Thanks.

This animation by Breck Campbell features music by Eric Shinn that translates the instance of glyphs directly into dubby musical rhythms. I created the text and concept.

Thanks Nick, that looks like an interesting project. I haven't found much on this subject whilst searching the web.
