Solar-wind chime

Solar-wind chime uses magnetically generated resonance to sound lengths of aluminium tube in response to solar wind data collected from a satellite an hour away from earth, producing a slowly-evolving audible and visual manifestation of the constant fluctuation of energy being released by the sun.


Solar-wind chime was developed in residence at Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol and was supported by the Institute of Physics Publishing.
