tone row poetry
Poesía digital interactiva
Lewis LaCook


tone row poetry is an algorithmically mediated synaesthesia. Inspired by 20th century composer Arnold Schoenberg's serialist music, the work matches the English alphabet with tones from the chromatic western scale. Every letter is a note, and a few are several. Add to this electric guitar, digital waveform synthesizer coloring, and some wildcard events, all performed by LaCook, and tone row poetry becomes a writing machine that is also an alien orchestra.
