During the 2017 Solar Eclipse, Bay Area composer and Staff Sound Artist at the Exploratorium Wayne Grim will be producing a real-time sonification of the eclipse that will be streamed by the Exploratorium as part of the composition ‘233rd Day’, for the renowned musical group Kronos Quartet.
To create these soundscapes, Grim processes digital information collected from an array of telescopes and translates that information into an auditory experience. He has produced sonifications of celestial events in the past, including the Transit of Venus in 2012 and the 2016 total solar eclipse broadcast from Micronesia.
