Symphonies of the Planets


Piano sound, custom software and web application

Generative music composed of 3177 exoplanets data. The physical properties of planets transform into the unique harmony bringing us to the music of nature. The dataset is collected from NASA Exoplanet Archive and mapped based on each property taking Earth as a reference point. Cycle period – orbit period [days] : Earth(365) takes 60 minutes to complete a cycle. Duration – distance from Earth [pc] : Earth(0) doesn't play and the furthest plays a full cycle. Pitch – planet radius [Jupiter radii] : Earth(0.0892) is C4. The bigger, the lower, and vice versa. Each side has a different mapping scale.
