Data Sonification

Data to sound, sound to vision. Finds by Kathryn Corrick.

    Oh wow - Water Takes the Shape of Sound Waves

No, that’s not some fancy CGI, it’s what happens to water in response to a special audio frequency. By allowing the water to pass through the sound wave, it forms shapes that seem completely unreal.

    A song of our warming planet by Daniel Crawford (2013)

    Many of you may have already seen this video. If so, it’s well worth reading the thoughts on Ashley Hamer on how this sonification could be taken forward.

    To explain to piece:

    When faced with the challenge of sharing the latest climate change discoveries, scientists often rely on data graphics and technical illustrations. University of Minnesota undergrad Daniel Crawford came up with a completely different approach. He’s using his cello to communicate the latest climate science through music.

    Worth a read, by Ashley Hamer, who begins:

    Data sonification is a touchy issue at Mad Art Lab. I’ll admit, when I first started writing here, I was on board with all of it — stock prices? Twitter conversations? TheHiggs-Boson? If you turn it into music, no matter what it sounds like, I guarantee I’ll be impressed.

    But an article musician Sarah Angliss wrote when she was a Lab contributor changed my mind on the matter.

    Forty-eight to Sixteen by Brian House, 2012

    Brian House here examines his daily bicycle commute from Brooklyn to midtown Manhattan, he explains:

    "… with sensors for my heartrate, breathing, and the cadence of my pedaling, along with chest-mounted video. Cellist Topu Lyo interprets my experience via a composition I derived from the sources that is precisely timed with the video. I am interested in ‘performing’ data and my and Topu’s divergent but equally physical and temporal relationship to the information. Additionally, the physiological basis of empathy has implications for recent trends in media culture toward first-person viewpoints and the integration of biometrics into documentary. Named after the gear ratio of my bike."

    Quotidian Record by Brian House

    Brian explains:

    "Quotidian Record is a limited edition vinyl recording that features a continuous year of my location-tracking data. Each place I visited, from home to work, from a friend’s apartment to a foreign city, is mapped to a harmonic relationship. 1 day is 1 rotation … 365 days is ~11 minutes.”

    Solar Wind Sonification by NASA/Goddard/Robert Alexander

    The music is driven by solar wind data that was captured by the ACE satellite during 2003.
