How Would Your Favourite Website Sound As a Melody? Let’s Find Out

January 6th, 2022 - Croatian entrepreneur Stevica Kuharski created a unique app that converts the HTML of any given website into a music file. Ever wanted to know how your favourite website would sound as a melody? Probably not, but now that we’re here, let’s find out! 


We weren’t expecting to ever think about websites in terms of melodies and harmonies, but there’s a first time for everything. 

Giving us one of those ‘now I’ve seen everything’ moments, picked up a story about a peculiar app created by Croatian entrepreneur Stevica Kuharski. 

His website HTML 2 Music does, well, exactly that - converts the HTML of any given website into a music file. 

‘I was playing my guitar, thinking about patterns, scales, harmonies and then it struck me! Decent UI should be structured, harmonic and follow certain UX patterns, right? Well, then it should sound melodic if converted to music, right? That sounds about right to me’, says Kuharski in the introduction on his site. 

It’s fairly straightforward to use; follow this link to open HTML 2 Music and paste the link to any other website into the URL field (it defaults to Google), including http:// or https://. Hit the download button to load the HTML, then the play button to hear what your website of choice sounds like as a melody. 

You can create new harmonies by changing the key or switching to a different play type and structure depth level. TCN, for example, sounds a bit jarring in the hard rock mode and repetitive if you switch to the piano play type, but is so good in the ‘good night sleep’ mode that I let it play in the background and forgot it was on for a while. 

Some have called HTML 2 Music the most useless website in existence, but if you ask me, that’s a bit simplistic; after all, it’s entertaining, and everyone’s sure to at least give it a try. As far as inventions go, this one proves that things can definitely be utterly pointless and brilliant at the same time.
