Anthroposphere
data sonification algorithm


Algorithm that generates musical compositions from the air we all breathe, collaboration with Michael Kotsimbos and initial sponsorship from the Yarra City Council,  2021.


Existing as a set of rules and functions, Anthroposphere can be thought of as a synthetic orchestra, with air pollutants as the instruments and our carbon footprint as the conductor. Currently the algorthim has generated a digital album made entirely out of Melbourne 2020 air. The project is online and ongoing.
