This video demonstrates the Vibe being played ambiently, by mining the Twitter network for emotional expressions related to tweets from people. The mapping between the emotions expressed and the tones played are displayed on the LCD. Once a remote user tweets the Vibe directly, they take over from the Twitterstream and in a way hijack the instrument. Once the direct tweet has been played, the Vibe automatically returns to playing ambiently by mining human expressions on the Twitterstream.

Vibe – Played via TwitterStream and taken over by a Direct Tweet from Cian McLysaght | Blog on Vimeo.
