The paper is entitled “V2Hz: Music Composition from Wind Turbine Energy using a Finite-State Machine” and will be published on IEEEExplore.
The paper explores the spatial sonification of distributed information sources based on an algorithmic approach to music.
By developing an algorithm that adopts the rules of music theory, it was possible to sonify random information sources in a manner which sounds similar to western music (i.e. the generated music is in a specific key, and forms chord progressions based on the solely on the data of the raw information sources). As test data we used the output voltages of wind turbines. The next stage will be to use this algorithm to sonify more complex EEG voltage signals in real-time.
