About

‘Trumpet’ is a Node.js server that listens to tweets from NYC that contain the words “trump” and “protest” and plays a note for every tweet. I developed ‘Trumpet’ with Dror Ayalon during Spotify’s NYC Monthly Music Hackathon.

Since the Hackathon took place on January 21st, 2017, a day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, we knew we wanted to create a generative music composition based on people emotions towards the president elect, and the protests around the inauguration.

Inspired by the protesters who flooded the streets of NYC and Washington D.C. in demonstration of their ideal of a democracy, Trumpet plays an ambient, relaxing translation of a non-violent yet historic protest as a musical composition.
