Ruth Jarman und Joe Gerhardt von Semiconductor haben Magnetstürme vertont und bebildert, heraus kam der experimentelle Kurzfilm „20 Hz“ oben.
20 Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA [Canadian Array for Realtime Investigations of Magnetic Activity] radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge suggestive of scientific visualisations. As different frequencies interact both visually and aurally, complex patterns emerge to create interference phenomena that probe the limits of our perception
Mir persönlich ist der ja etwas zu artyfarty und ihr über drei Jahre alter Magnetic Movie gefällt mir hundertmal besser:
The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA's Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers' produced by fleeting electrons . Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?
