Within 140 Characters is an interactive sonic composition which aims to explore the social media phenomenon of Twitter, and its ability to not just entertain, but also give voice and power to those who participate in it. Constrictive, or perhaps liberating, with a unique space of 140 characters, Twitter becomes a personal broadcast station for a sundry of proclamations, from succinct to banal. This sound installation aims to investigate this by grabbing live data from Twitter to create an immediate soundscape.

Within 140 Characters is a selected proposal for Substation's Sound Art Open Call substation.org/within-140-characters/
