Solar Storm Soundtrack

An aid to data analysis which sounds very strange!

"In space - no one can hear you sonify"

It's strange indeed, but give it a few months and Hawkwind will be doing the same thing to enhance their music.

Thanks for posting it, jules - the fact that part of it sounds like distorted speech is in a way, creepy.

I noticed the very same creepiness. I just wonder how useful something like this is.

Over to a scientist..... ;)

Creepy is the word, it sounded like a cross between a growl and a voice. Silly as this may sound, it reminded me of the big beastie in the Dr Who episode when he went down into The Pit and met that huge devil thingie. I'e got far too viid an imagination  ;D

I've not used sonification in my science but it sure is an interesting way to explore the data.
The artists semiconductor use this in their film Brilliant Noise. Excellent stuff it is too.
