How the Squid Sings (It Screams): Thoughts and Techniques Regarding Sonification

Singing comets, clouds of data, weather systems, markets; confronted head on, they present as massive, sublime phenomena. We have visualizations, models, and mathematical abstractions to help us grasp patterns and feign predictions in these stormy realms, but perhaps the dynamic and uncanny medium of sound can best express the excessive experience of utter contingency arcing through each quark.

See (and hear) several approaches to sonifying complex phenomenon, building from small parts to larger systems. Encounter both the possibilities and limitations brought about by digital processing, and consider the aesthetic choices one makes once systems are translated to a mappable state. Oh, and hear some powerful music while enjoying some local brews.
