The Roads of Washington DC in Five Minutes

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.

The track was created by osm2midi[1] and synthesized by Logic Express.

New York is in the works, and a departure from the twelve-tone technique[2] may be taken.
