Can a typeface be heard?

What does a typeface sound like?

What if a typeface is encoded with musical notes and melody?


For this project, I experimented with the relationship between type and sound. Our recognition of a typeface could not only rely on formal visual elements, such as shape of serifs, contrast in line weights, and angle of the turns, but also could be based on sound and music.
