Artist turns a year’s worth of location data into music

Media artist Brian House just did the unthinkable: he used a personal tracking app to collect all his movements over a year, worked out an algorithm to set the places he visited most to music, then stamped it all on vinyl.

In other words, he effectively turned his location data into Quotidian Record, an epic 11-minute musical track. Wired commented, ‘In an age of infographics, quantified selves, and the all-fixing promise of Big Data, House’s record is refreshingly useless.’ Sure, but the bleeps sound really good.
