A Universe Of Sound


Recommended Posts

 

"Sonification is the process that translates data into sound, and a new project brings the center of the Milky Way to listeners for the first time. The translation begins on the left side of the image and moves to the right, with the sounds representing the position and brightness of the sources. The light of objects located towards the top of the image are heard as higher pitches while the intensity of the light controls the volume. Stars and compact sources are converted to individual notes while extended clouds of gas and dust produce an evolving drone."

 

According to this video, the universe sounds like a lullaby. I expected it to be more chaotic.

More sounds here, which are closer to my expectations. The pulsars are cool:
