Chirping Stars is a concept for a tape piece of a sonification of Twitter data. A snapshot of the popularity of musicians, randomly drawn in March 2012, yielded eight of the most popular stars at that time. Data of their Twitter followers shows the involvement of rapidly evolving fans of the artists on social media. The sonic interpretation of this development is created by mapping the data to parameters that modulate and re-synthesize the sound tracks of the artists.
