Submission + - BlodeJazz lets you hear your web traffic (

PerlJedi writes: "There is an interesting write up, and demonstration on sparkfun today of a system which takes the analytics data from traffic on a website, and presents it not as a graph, but as a sound. Not that it is terribly usefull in and of itself, but I like the twist on how statistical and real time traffic can be presented.

blodeJazz is a Node.js blode client that parses the stream of events sent from's web servers and turns those events into Open Sound Control messages which correspond to notes in the current key of a jazz chord progression. These OSC messages are then parsed in Max/MSP and sent as MIDI notes to a software synth for playback. Max/MSP also handles forwarding the OSC messages to a monome 256 and arc 4 for display, and also handles the arc 4 and 256 user interaction.
