Hacker/inventor Tom Zimmerman created Project: Autobahn, a generative music system that creates music based on an automobile’s control sensors.
Zimmerman participated in the Boing Boing Ingenuity: Data Driven hack day on August 17, 2013. His creation, Project: Autobahn, was awarded their “Weirdest Hack” prize.
Project: Autobahn uses OpenXC data as MIDI data to compose and play Kraftwerkian music that matches the driver’s behavior. As Zimmerman says in the video, the style of music the car generates could be used to provide feedback to the driver.
