celestial sonification ?

March 8, 2008 | 12:04 am

hello,
surely some of you know this nice application:

http://www.shatters.net/celestia/

is there any chance of getting data streams (lists, numbers,..) from
celestia into max?
maybe i should ask this question at the celestia-forum, but i thought
there might be some insight here.

thanks
klaus

A student at the institute of sonology (sonology.org) recently showed a set of abstractions working out the relationships between celestial bodies. He has not (yet) made them publicly available, although the rules they describe are fairly straightforward: forces of attraction between masses on a certain distance, and acceleration as a result of these forces. Certainly this could be programmed using standard objects. The interesting step this student has taken is introducing the ability of giving an impuls to a body with a musical event, thus disturbing the universe and make objects spiral into each other, until they get kicked again. The data from (dis)placement of objects in space control a live environment that appears to have a high level of interaction.

Maybe this doesn’t help you in any way, maybe it gives you some ideas.

I’ve been wanting to do this for quite some time as well. I heard the
programmer lives in my neck of the woods, (Seattle) and I have a friend who
knows him, but I’ve never gone forward with it. Sorry, I’m entirely behind
your efforts!
