Data Sonification

FJORD & BÆLT is an open research lab in Kerteminde, Denmark that investigates the local marine ecosystems of the Great Belt. For the permanent underwater tunnel exhibition, we created a multichannel soundscape composition, reflecting on the natural forces that influence underwater life.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

COMPOSING WITH DATA

The structure of our composition was based on environmental data recorded close to the research station in 2016. For the piece we translated different variables - like the moon phase or sea level pressure into musical structures and forms. The four-hour composition passes through all recorded data of 2016 and sonifies the entire year in an acoustic time lapse, where a day lasts40 seconds and a month 20 minutes.
