Real Time Earthquake Sound Art Installation

Tectonic is a sound sculpture created by Micah Frank. The system processes earthquakes as they occur in real time, flying to the coordinates of the epicentre in Google Earth, and translating the seismic data into sound.  As new earthquakes occur the soundscape develops, never repeating itself.

To watch it in action, and get the low-down about how it works check out Micah’s video.
