zipCoda is an audio installation that creates musical compositions based on geographical and cultural data. The user enters a 5 digit zip code in to device, and a unique musical composition begins, translating the economic, social, and spatial structures of an area into a specialized musical experience. Latitude, longitude, economic indicators, population demographics, real estate prices, geotagged flickr photos and twitter posts: these elements combine to create a soundscape that highlights the subtle differences between states, counties, and neighborhoods across the country.
