1. A clarinetist plays through a piece by Stravinsky. Body movements are collected using a motion capture system and sent to a software tool for sonification.

    Notice how the sound collects between phrases and during relatively easy sections. Notice (if you can) any correlations with the underlying music. Does the music help the sonification convey more meaning? Conversely, does the sonification augment the experience of music? How are you listening?

  2. A simulation of a phase transition that occurred shortly after the big bang. The blue bubbles represent transitions to a lower-energy state in which particles have mass; the red fluctuating background represents the initial, high-energy state of the universe, in which particles did not have mass. This transition occurred about 10^-10 seconds after the Big Bang and lasted for about 10^-13 seconds. Created by Andrew Blaike, Mike Winters, Dr. Deva O'Neil NSF-REU College of Wooster Summer 2010.
