I'm playing with an idea that might become a project: 1. extract phonemes from a text, 2. sort by frequency, 3. then wander through those with Perlin noise. The results are kind of pleasing and at least mostly pronounceable:


If you blur your eyes I think the noise pattern is pretty evident. I may want to try using the phoneme noise to look for best fit words.

Another idea would be to sort the phonemes by similarity, which gets closer to the intent of adjacency in noise(), but I think that would be less likely to resolve back into words.
