Taking notes? TransProse algorithm turns novels into music

A project called TransProse translates literature into music. TransProse is described as “the first iteration” of a program that finds different emotions throughout different novels and programmatically creates music based on those values. The project is the creation of Hannah Davis, a programmer, artist, and musician based in New York City, whose areas of interest include data visualization, and Saif Mohammad research officer at the National Research Council Canada. His research interests are natural language processing, especially lexical semantics. He develops computational models for emotion detection, word-color associations, semantic distance, and lexical-semantic relations such as word-pair antonymy. Their interests help explain their interest in exploring how novels can be translated into music.
