Our website sounds like "dream pop"

This little time-waster known as The Code Organ takes the code from a particular website and turns it into music.

Here's the site's all-caps explanation:

THE CODEORGAN ANALYSES THE *BODY* CONTENT OF ANY WEB PAGE AND TRANSLATES THAT CONTENT INTO MUSIC. THE CODEORGAN USES A COMPLEX ALGORITHM TO DEFINE THE KEY, SYNTH STYLE AND DRUM PATTERN MOST APPROPRIATE TO THE PAGE CONTENT.

Erika Fredrickson, our arts editor and chief music critic, called the Indy site's sound "dream pop electronica."

Ira Sather-Olson, our calendar editor and resident electronic music fanboy, got caught up in the key structure, or something. "It doesn't sound...what is the word? Totally grounded," he said. "It just kind of goes off."
