Oh, what a lovely visual and auditory treat!!!
Click here for how the stars and constellations sounded during the Great Conjunction of 21 December 2020.
“You may create your personalized video of the stars and constellations that were visible overhead with music generated by the stars themselves by converting each star’s color and brightness into a musical note.
This process is called sonification.
The redder stars produce lower pitched notes while the bluer stars produce higher notes. The brighter the star, the louder the note. The animation and music are created using highly accurate astronomical catalogs and [the creator’s] own software.
My Starry Night is created by the astrophysicists and musicians of SYSTEM Sounds. [They] convert the rhythms and harmonies of the cosmos into music and sound and frequently collaborate with NASA to make astronomy more accessible to the blind and visually impaired. Watch co-founder Matt Russo’s TED Talk ‘What Does the Universe Sound Like?‘ to learn more about the deep connection between music and astronomy.”
