The Text Song


Well this isn't something that happens every day.

So, some five years ago I was interviewed for a documentary on text adventures called Get Lamp. In the course of it, I delivered a rant on how the future of graphics is text (which was inspired by an article I'd read years earlier by Isaac Asimov on a similar topic).

Someone has only gone and set it to music.

The someone in question is Tim Labor, an Associate Professor in the Department of Music at the University of California, Riverside. His specialisation is composition, and he's entered the piece for a competition called Fifteen Minutes of Fame.

Here's the sheet music for the piece: ttstl.pdf.
Here it is being played: ttstl.mp3.

Thankfully, the soprano part for the play-through is being taken by a clarinet, so you don't actually have to hear my rant being sung unless you want to do it karaoke.

Sometimes, the world I live in gets strangely strange.
