Understanding Networks: Traceroute Tones
Rather than visually illustrate the paths that packets take, I decided to use sound to reflect on the journey and slow down the time to understand each stop that information makes along the network. Found inspiration in modem dial-up sounds.
The intention of this program is to take in IP addresses gathered from a traceroute search, map them to audible frequencies and have them play as a short melody for each traceroute (one chord per IP address). Big ups to Aaron Montoya for help with the audio code.
As of this writing, the code is still in buggy, only able to play one IP address.
Would like to continue working on this so that I can automate the connection from terminal to p5.js and easily pass through/sonify the IP data.
