Experiments in Sound and Typography investigates and presents approaches for linking typography and sound. Using computationally derived sound signals such as frequency and amplitude, this project presents twenty-six animated experiments based on symbols central to communication in certain parts of the world: the alphabet. These novel compositions allow one to experience a range of synchronous linkages between sound and letterforms. Each program will explore a particular theme or concept which will speak to an essential aspect of typography.
