Anna Brooks: Astrophonica


Anna Brooks

Astrophonica is a collection data-driven sonic landscapes presented though headphones in light-isolating booths. Each work hypothesizes what it might sound like to walk though three dynamic moons of Saturn and Jupiter: Titan, Enceladus, and Io. Spoken narrative guides a listener though the soundscapes and contextualizes the information contained within. Environmental sounds are created using data, and original compositions on musical instruments are placed within the sonic landscape for reference. By translating data into their acoustic implications, Astrophonica will ground relevant scientific findings into human experiences. The goal of this project is to combine artistic interpretation with scientific data to propose an approachable way to portray complex information and allow a wider audience to resonate with the implications of scientific findings.
