Stratigraphic Sound

stratigraphic diagrams, algorithm, sound

Sonifies the geologic strata diagrams produced by petrochemical companies, feeding them into a reverse-spectrogram algorithm which converts image to sound frequencies. As the sound plays, it moves down through the geologic strata – from surface dust to Cambrian core. The work pushes against nature-as-resource, voicing the earth as an alien hum generated by the accumulations of deep time.
