Tweet the lyrics

March 25, 2013 § Leave a comment

I really don’t know how to explain this in a way that makes it justice so perhaps you should better visit tweetflight immediately. If you insist, though, here is my best try. Electro-folk (yes, this classification exists) group Brightly have released one of the most clever web-based music videos ever, for their song Preflight Nerves.

preflight nerves

 

It is basically a lyrics video, but the words of the song are drawn (almost) real-time from tweets. Clever huh?

Taking the words / phrases out of the context of the tweet and into the song and vice-versa is very interesting; sometimes poignant, sometimes ironic, sometimes hilarious.

I am dying to create a self-referential loop by tweeting about this and appearing in the video!

Playing with reality

April 29, 2011 § 1 Comment

What would happen if what people share in their social networks turns real? And best of all, if you could play with that? Well, if you like the idea of the twittersphere becoming a virtual universe, this is for you. Welcome to Tweet Land, the first set of videogames that plays with reality.

This is the teaser of Tweet Land, a video game in development, which will blend reality and fiction, by incorporating users’ real time activity in Twitter into the game’s narrative. This means that every time someone tweets something, these tweets will affect the gameplay of Tweet Land by triggering certain action-keywords.
