Postconscious: a web experiment

POSTCONSCIOUS is a web experiment by Andrew McCarthy that extracts random posts from Twitter, and reads them aloud using Speech Cloud text-to-speech. The app uses a cute and kitsch reverb effects and a retro typeface called Space Mono. What results is a strange echo-chamber of vaguely familiar and yet alien sounding voices coming out of the ether and their inner most thoughts, emotions and verbal diarrhoea on Twitter is regurgitated into the aural atmosphere and the result is something that sound disturbing and yet very compelling. Andrew McCarthy is a (very talented) web developer from Phoenix and now based in Berlin, you can follow him on Twitter @andrevvm
