Visualizing Joyce's 'Ulysses': "Sirens"

A portrayal of recurring sounds in the “Sirens” chapter of Ulysses. The implied musicality of this chapter, coupled with the mechanistic-if-it-were-not-intentional recurrence of certain words, renders it a legitimate candidate for graphic representation. The process of visualization is itself equal parts intentional and mechanistic, and when applied to text purportedly written in the style of a fugue, reveals a macro-level depiction of audible patterns otherwise lost in the linearity of the book.
