Raspberry Pi Converts Cryptocurrency Trading Data Into Music


In what must be one of the stranger build projects we’ve covered, this collaboration between Texas-based explain-o-genius Estefannie and British synth-pop anarchist Look Mum No Computer plays music, or at least generates sounds, based on the fluctuations of the cryptocurrency market. Originally featured on the Raspberry Pi Blog, it deserves to go global.

Look Mum No Computer, AKA Sam, approached Esteffanie to do the encoding for his project. Her solution was to use a Raspberry Pi, set to track cryptocurrency markets, and output the data to a breadboard full of LEDs. Sam then built a series of analog circuits that slow down this trading data to a more musically inclined tempo, before routing the monotone output through oscillators to produce chords.
