The Sound of Pandemic

The Sound of Pandemic

An ad perpetuum sonification of Covid-19 news feeds

The Sound of Pandemic is a little project that tries to transpose to sound what happened (and what is still happening) in Italy and in the rest of the world during the Covid-19 pandemic, by generating a kind of never ending stream of audio events which are - on their side - the result of a sonification of the most known italian news feeds.
For the project in question a little server that periodically acquires and sonifies up-to-date RSS feeds has been deployed; furthermore, thanks to a simple asynchronous HTTP connection to this latter (check the paragraph below), it is possible to listen for the result of the mentioned sonification in almost real time (the overall average latency amount is just of some seconds).

Notes about the audio stream:
