Tectonic - Earthquakes Generate Music in Realtime

    Tectonic is a sound sculpture created in real time by earthquakes as they occur across the globe. A tightly integrated system between Max/MSP, Google Earth and Ableton Live processes a stream of real-time data that is translated into synthesis and sample playback parameters.

      do you use any characteristics of the earthquake's ground motion waveform recorded at any site to control any aspect of the audio piece? Or do you simply use the random occurrence time and semi-random sextant of occurrence ?
