NetSong (2001)

When provided a search term, the netsong bot will search for this term in a search engine, then choose a page from the search results and begin following links from that page. It will continue to follow links from the resulting pages indefinitely, backing up and rerouting if it hits a dead end. Happily gathering text from each page it visits, the netsong bot savors the unique lyricality and poignant narrative of the web and begins to sing it. Not content to merely surf the information superhighway, the netsong bot makes it music.
