Listen To The Japan Earthquake

Produced by Tectonic, these eerily harmonic and rhythmic sounds are the sonification of seismic activity off the coast of Honshu during Japan’s massive earthquake on Friday.

What is Tectonic?

“Tectonic is a realtime seismic analysis and sound synthesis system. Sound is created in realtime by earthquakes as they occur across the globe. A tightly integrated system between Max/MSP, Google Earth and Symbolic Sound’s Kyma processes earthquake data that is translated into sound synthesis parameters.”
