Computer scientists in Finland have developed a method that automatically composes music out of sleep measurements. The composition service works live on the Web at sleepmusicalization.net
Developed under Hannu Toivonen, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Helsinki, Finland, the software automatically composes synthetic music using data related to a person’s own sleep as input. The composition program is the work of Aurora Tulilaulu, a student of Professor Toivonen.
“The software composes a unique piece based on the stages of sleep, movement, heart rate and breathing. It compresses a night’s sleep into a couple of minutes,” she describes.
