Using text network visualization we can convert any text into a musical score, which can be used to play music live. This case study demonstrates how this can be done in a VR space.
Music can be visualized as a graph. While there are many ways to do that, one of the possibilities is to represent the notes (and octaves) as the nodes and their co-occurrences as the connections between them. This representation allows us to reveal patterns in our composition and to use the powerful graph theory algorithms to uncover interesting insights about the structure of the music we’re playing.

Text network visualizations are most often used to study and analyze data. However, how can an analytical tool become a musical instrument and what are the implications of that, both for the research process and for the creative work?
