Images captured by Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) of NASA over 3 months (about 3 solar cycles) are analyzed with several computer vision algorithms and fed into a sound generation software/hardware to create an interactive sonification and visualization of the process and turned into a performance.
Sonification part strives to present sonic information through digital and analog processes of synthesis that interact and modify each other. The data is traslated into table of values for FM synthesizers and Voltage Control for a Modular Synth that depend on the data presented on the visuals.
