TheAtacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array(ALMA) and the Department of Astronomy of the Universidad de Chile (DAS) in conjunction with Snar+D and Corporacin Chilena de Video, invite musicians and artists to work with sounds created from the observations of the most powerful radio telescope in the world. The event forms part of the SonarSound Santiago festival and will take place this Saturday, December 5 from 1:00 to 9:30 pm in theMarketLabspace at the Suricato Hangars (former Los Cerrillos Airport, Pedro Aguirre Cerda 6100, Cerrillos).
“Both sound and light behave as waves. However, they have different properties. For example, sound requires a material medium such as air to propagate, whereas light can propagate in a vacuum. This allows us to capture light from remote corners of the Universe but not sound,”explains Antonio Hales, ALMA astronomer who participated in the process.”For this exercise, we use wave similarities between light and sound to transpose the radio waves received by ALMA into sound waves, which can be used by artists and musicians,”adds Hales.”The excellent sensitivity of the observatory antennas enabled us to reach greater depth in the sounds obtained (tonalities), which translates into increased diversity for those who occupy them.”
Hales worked with Ricardo Finger, electrical engineer from the Universidad de Chile, to process radio waves captured by ALMA and transform them into sound waves, attempting to keep the information from the original waves intact. The signals processed come from the ALMA public data archives, where the samples are organized into a true sound library,
orsoundbank, for display and use at Snar+D.
“I am pleased to be able to translate the observations from ALMA into a format that can be used in other fields, in particular music, one of my preferred art forms,”says Finger.”It is also interesting to note that this translation is not a free interpretation, but rather a transformation made with the utmost mathematical rigor, ensuring that the resulting sounds are consistent with the signals observed by ALMA.”
For Enrique Rivera, one of the event organizers,” Sounds is one of the major milestones for Snar+D, resulting from a search to combine music and astronomy. The quest for frequencies with radio telescopes is similar to the quest that a musician makes with sound it is the basis of an astronomer exploration, but it can also be transposed into an artistic field, applying all of this technology to the development of art, even though it may not have been the motive behind the creation of these technologies.”
Paloma Chicharro, artistic director of Sonar+D, poses that”participants of this congress will experience a proposal that is based on the compilation of frequencies converted to sound, which generate an immersive sound installation, creating an unpMarketLabrecedented experience in Chile and its potential for amplification to the rest of the world, thanks to this important international festival. In addition to ALMA,
there will be open spaces bySantiago Maker Spaceand interactive installations by artist Ivn Navarro.
