For the Night of the Arts and Science,
From a specially designed laboratory we are comparing local seismic activity and combining this with existing data from international seismic activity. This complex data is examined in our mobile laboratory, processed and then sonificated and visualized live on site.
In order to create music of seismic data, we audificatie and use a technical treatment with ultrasound used to create an auditory display. Audificatie and sonification processes can be defined as the conversion of data to, man perceive relationships of acoustic signals, to simplify communication and / or interpretation.
The ideological background for this arrangement is to create greater social awareness of natural ecological systems that occur under our feet, related to current events,
The arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity and almost all of the great inventors and scientists were also musicians, artists, writers and poets.
Think … Galileo, Michelangelo, Da Vinci and Einstein, to name but a few.
The Seismic Sonification Visualization Laboratory is a project of Arno Scheper and Denis Oudendijk, i.s.m. Renzo Steenbergen (audio) and William Witte (video)
