Sounds Of The Internet – Embedded autoplay music gets its own special mixtape

14.03.12

We’ve all felt the frustration of trying to figure out which browser tab it is featuring an incessant loop of music. As a tribute to this practice of website (anti)design Sounds of the Internet has mixed its favourite websites featuring autoplay music and mixed it into one easy-to-locate browser window. While these just-above-ringtone sounds are annoying when they burst through your usual listening, when you take big band sound of Grand Dance Studio or the chilled-out polyphonic tunes of Napa Valley’s Ace Cleaners as choice, it’s a charming, enlightening view on music and the internet, almost like a modern Folkways.
