Music of the Nano-Spheres: On Sonification

nano.jpgFrom Nano-Wiki :: Music of the Nano-Spheres by Roger Malina, April 15, 2010:

There is a several thousand year history of associating music with cosmic phenomena, the famous “Music of the Spheres” created from the regularities in the astronomical universe. Even though of course there is generally no sound in outer space, because the conditions of pressure and density to allow acoustic waves are very rare.

The same urge motivates artists and scientists interested in sonifying

Sound Artist Peter Gena has a large collection of DNA Music and other sonifications of molecular structures: http://www.petergena.com/DNAmus.html

What distinguishes sonification from other forms of data mediation? What are the different ways in which sonification is used in art? What parallels, similarities, differences & contradictions exist between the use of sonification or audio display for technical & for artistic purposes? What differences in the artistic approach does the use of realtime as opposed to recorded data imply? What is the importance of the relationship between the source of data and the way in which it is mediated? Continue reading
