The Sound of Data: Using Python to transform data streams into music.

Description

We visualize complex data in order to understand it, find patterns in it, and gain perspective on it. But what happens when we transform data streams into sounds and music, and how can we do this with Python? Sound crazy? Probably, but as a musician turned Developer, I find the intersection of music and code to be fascinating. And I think others will too. This talk will go over the technologies and python libraries used to translate data streams (weather, financial data, anything) into MIDI that then is fed into synthesizers and virtual instruments.
