Lemmon’s research in Switzerland will focus on developing a computer music system that will explore the politics of audience participation. The system will interpret text messages and tweets from an audience through natural language processing and then sonify the results. The resultant musical work will allow audience members to interact with one another and shape the course of the work, as well as serve as a commentary on different forms of governance.
