Making music with map data

Link to French Letter's OSM data music page

From the Open Geodata Blog:

Check out a unique use for Open Street Map data: music! From the artist's, French Letter, site on Band Camp: "This is Washington, DC and the surrounding highways remapped in audio. It is an east-west sweep of the city, so it begins with the slow creep of the Potomac River heading southeast and then hits the chaos of the city. North-South values are mapped to pitch."
