    Poemes and Phonemes from Kyle McDonald on Vimeo.

    Phonologically driven generative poetry, explored as a response to the standard orthographically driven electronic poetry (and its precursors: Oulipo, Dada).

    A genetic algorithm operates on "Poemes" made up of lines. The goal for this instance is to maximize the consonance and assonance of adjacent consonants and vowels, respectively. A new poem-population is created every 200 generations.

    The visualization shows the movement of the poem over time in an approximate consonant space (blue) and vowel space (orange).

    English language information drawn from the Moby Project. Built with Processing in Eclipse. For more information about classification of speech sounds, one place to start is the Wikipedia article on the International Phonetic Alphabet
