TransProse Creates a Musical Score Based on the Emotions in a Novel

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

transposeDo you ever wonder what your novel would sound like if it was adapted by a composer?

New York City- based programmer/musician Hannah Davis and Saif Mohammad, a Research Officer at the National Research Council Canada (NRC), have created software that will allow you to answer this very question. TransProse reads a novel and identifies different emotions that are evoked throughout the book. Then it takes this information to automatically create music based around those  identified values.

We’ve embedded TransProse’s musical adaptation of Peter Pan below.
