how were you able to maintain the integrity of the music?  why didn't it sound like you were playing random notes?  did some characters require chords?  very awesome!

It was quite a challenge actually :) The left hand on the video is used mainly for harmonization, while single notes or two-note combinations in the right hand map to the actual characters.

I've heard of people using stenotype keyboards and software to code, stenotype keyboards are chord-based so it might work well for this type of application. Would be even cooler to incorporate a 'Jammer' isomorphic keyboard to make more chords. I could see Dvorak users and vi/emacs addicts feeling at home on something like that.
