SoundLines on Sonification Blog



SoundLines is featured today on a sonification blog here

I met Kovas a week or so ago in Santa Barbara and we had a really great chat about sonification and different ideas of process versus system. The blog is a great resource.

Pattern Free Music


well, not really pattern free, there is a lot this guy doesn't consider, but this is a parlour trick not a well thought out piece. If he had thought about it, he would not have choosen sonata for the title.

4D



The mathematical concept of a 4-dimensional cube is much more simple than getting an imagination of 4 dimensional space. Some might argue, that it is impossible to imagine 4-dimensional space because of it does not exist. Others might say, it's because our brains are not made for this. But what would happen, if we would discover a 4-dimensional space suddenly? Were humans able to learn how to navigate in there? Would they start to develop imaginations of it?
The cybernetic scientist Heinz von F├Ârster describes an experimental setting to investigate such questions. Following his thesis according to the 'radical constructivism', human brains - and so the minds - are able to learn any kind of sensomotoric invariant and create a reality out of it. They do not recognize the world, as a 'naive realist' might claim, but they construct it by interaction.
This viewpoint leads to two assumptions:
There is no fixed 3D capability of the brain, so we might be able to live in a 4D world.
We create a 4D reality much faster if interaction is involved
So it might be possible to get an imagination of 4-dimensional space, but probably not by looking to the rotating blue-green cube on this page, but by interacting with it. Try it out here

Infrared Weather

Over 3500 individual infrared images from the GOES East weather satellite, collected between October 28,2011 to January 1, 2012 and made into a movie.

Notice the increase in the number of frames (i.e. the slowdown in the time rate) as the satellite takes more frequent images to carefully monitor Tropical Storm Sean.
