Exploring Molecular Sonification in Musical Composition

“So that I may perceive whatever holds // The world together in its inmost folds.”
– Faust, Johann Wolfgang Goethe

A journey through three years of PhD research exploring the use of chemical data for sound creation. Featuring the first ever PhD at NOVARS combining shared supervision between Music and the School of Chemistry.
The open research session presents methodologies for and examples of the use of chemical data in electroacoustic music composition: from aesthetic inquiries into the audification of atomic oscillations, over virtual reality molecular art installations, to the sonification of complex chemical systems such as the pollution cycles of the Baltic Sea and DNA patterns of extinct animal species
