The Dictionary Project
Collaborative sound composition “game”
Dictionary is a computer-based collaborative compositional environment developed by the artist John Roach for web-based server groups like Hotline or KDX. It evolved out of a desire to create a sample-based collaboration, one that allowed groups of people to share their sonic eccentricities quickly and unhindered by distances. Dictionary uses the Oxford English Dictionary word of the day website as a starting point for sonic constructions built from the collected soundpool of its participants.
