What would a written character sound like other than spoken phonetically? Toneletters is an interactive experiment on human perception and audiovisual effects which interplays letterforms, sound, patterns to form abstractions. Typography no longer represents just as a formal aspect of information, but could be a carrier of endless interactive sound and visual language!
The project explores the audio-visualisation of letters under specified musical parameters. Toneletters could be reimagined on a Live format through an installation or in public space with moving typography projected on the wall; surround sound experience controlled at a booth. The data content (text) is transmitted via daily news and highlights.
With moving typography and sound, the web application allows users to participate both as a musician and a viewer; with it that the musician can share the text in form of a melody with friends.
