MidiPoet is a project from artist Eugenio Tisselli framed within what could be referred to as e-poetry. It is software conceived and developed by programmer Eugenio Tisselli and which is freely available for download and use on PCs.
It consists of two programs: "Composer" and "Performer", which can be used to compose and perform, respectively, manipulable pieces of text and/or images. These pieces may or may not respond to external impulses, such as MIDI messages or the computer keyboard, and generate visual manifestations involving the manipulation of the different text attributes (content, letter type, position, size, etc.), the image (content, position, etc.) and other visual elements and effects. With its simple and intuitive interface, MIDIPoet is designed to actualize words, rescuing the transience and performance from poetry and adding the visual quality of signs to the setting.
