Arthur Jeffes’s Musical Gravitational Waves #Space #MusicMonday
We’re loving this music and the methodology used to create it! From Motherboard:
This time around, Jeffes took data from the two black holes colliding and used the audio editing software Logic to chop, stretch, and overlay his own music over the sounds. The waveforms, according to Jeffes, are like exponential curves that acquire a higher pitch as they peak. To obtain his piano lines, Jeffes took these curves and mapped them into MIDI patterns.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
