Ghost Jockey is a computer program that continually generates mashup audio and video. The program repeatedly swaps audio samples from a library, layers and aligns them by tempo and key, and makes decisions on volume levels. The visuals are created by running a Google image search on the name and artist of each sample, cycling through the results, and adjusting the brightness with the volume of each sample track; the result is multi-track layered images that pulse with the music.
