Code + Chords

Code + Chords is a project blending computer science and music. Led by a group of undergraduate students with backgrounds in computer science, engineering, and music, the team is developing an open source coding library for creating real-time visual displays based on vocal inputs. The Code + Chords group has collaborated with performers like the ensemble Cantus and the University of St. Thomas’s female acapella group, Cadenza, to product creative show treatments. The Code + Chords software was also featured in an episode of TPT’s SciGirls, which will premiere Fall of 2019.
