In the ever expanding study of text to music and trying to find new ways artists can create compositions.
Personal being a big fan of ascii art and what text to music is the sound version of ascii art I wanted to combine them so while back i came across a site called GlassGiants. They have a great online Ascii art generator.. which lets you either link a image with a url or upload one and the site will convert. Through the use of text to music I take the idea one step further by copying and pasting the outputted. ascii art into a text to music generator and Save the outputed midi which i will route to a soft-synth or instrument that can play back midi..
here a short example of this concept in action

I hope to see more people explore this idea and love to hear your creations..
