The complex relationship between type and sound is the topic of choice of many Dynamic Media Institute MFA students. The project by Kate Nazemi entitled Code Performs has grown from her personal interests in phonetic poetry, particularly in Kurt Schwitters "Ursonate." Kate built a system that applied phonetic expression to the arcane keywords of assembly commands — a low-level computer language that was never intended to be spoken out loud. The project was presented as a gallery installation allowing users to interact (via mouse and touch screen) with slowly moving typography representing the assembly strings. By a gesture of pointing, stopping or moving the code in different directions with different velocity, the user triggered a sequence of phonetic repetitions — de facto creating a semi-random visual and phonetic compositions.
