Giorgio Sancristoforo – ‘Music From Cosmic Rays’

Sound artist and developer Giorgio Sancristoforo (Berna, Gleetchlab) shared this video, Cosmic Rays Music, created with the prototype of his cosmic rays real-time score and sequencer software.

Here’s what he has to say about it:

“The software is connected to a muon particle detector that sends real-time data to the computer. The ADC values are converted to MIDI notes as well as fingering for my ancient greek kithara (??????). I will use this software and detector for my forthcoming ambient music performance ?????? (Cosmos).

The detector was engineered at the italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and uses a plastic scintillator with a silicon photomultiplier and a custom digital hardware driven by an Arduino2.”
