A generative sequence of sounds created by data sonification based on NASA Exoplanet data.
In cosmology the universe started off in a big bang 13.7 billion years ago. And unfortunately, we are still clueless as to most of it. Amongst tons of planets in the universe, what we have discovered so far is a small portion. This project represents my attitude as well as expression towards wonders of the universe. All the sounds here are generated by dataset collected from NASA Exoplanet Archive.
The original dataset includes total of 3791 confirmed planets as of Sep. 27. For not only meaningful but suitable synthesization, 10 parameters are selected and mapped to musical features from 67.
Based on a seven-note scale in B major, a pitch for each note is mapped from the remainder of parameter value divided by 7. A duration is mapped from the scale of parameter value compared to the total.
