VenetianScript or VS for short, is a music-based esolang created by PoptartPlungerBoi in 2024. The esolang uses MIDI drums as code.


In 2024, PoptartPlungerBoi thought of a musical esolang but using drums as code. This was made after the esolang also made by PoptartPlungerBoi as another non-textual esolang.


The esolang's name is a combination of both JavaScript and Canadian breakcore musician Aaron Funk, also known by his stage name, Venetian Snares.

To make a program, any MIDI editor can be used. The MIDI file should have the BPM of 135. ('s Composer web app is good for making MIDI files as code.) Any Unicode character (in binary) can be used in the code.

*Since any Unicode character can be used, it includes math symbols simple and complex. Thus making VenetianScript technically Turing-complete.
