Backroads America:The Place Where You Go To Listen

Earth Music

The Place Where You Go To Listen, The Museum of the North, University of Alaska, Fairbanks, Alaska.

Inside this sound and light environment, the changing colors and music are generated by the vibrations in the earth, the air, and the sky. The sounds are not created by musical instruments. Daylight colors are yellow, orange and red, with a choir of bright voices. Unfortunately, the video sound does not capture the thrumming vibrations.

Scientific instruments pull raw seismic and auroral data. An algorithm translates that data to music. Created by composer John Luther Adams, 2004-2006
