The electronic music artist Kieran Hebdan, better known by his stage name Four Tet, has an interesting About page on Spotify. It looks to me to be just gibberish, but perhaps there is some way to decipher its meaning?

Below is what I get when I copy and paste the biography portion.

  • It looks a little bit to me like what sheet music looks like if printed in the wrong font. You might try rendering it in a musical font like Sonata. – Chris Sunami supports Monica Mar 2 '20 at 20:12

  • @ChrisSunamisupportsMonica There are certainly multiple fonts there. For instance, இ is from the Tamil alphabet and represents a short "i" sound, as in "hit", and ɷ is the Latin small letter closed omega. It's most likely gibberish. – user3955 May 15 '20 at 5:42
