Paper: Sonified Universe: Cosmos' Electroacoustic Ensembles

Abstract: The universe has a soundtrack; space can wabble like a drum. Acoustics adds a sonic composition to our understanding of cosmos. This workshop explores excellent resources for educators at the forefront of sonifying astronomical data to understand, communicate and delve creatively into wonders of our universe at the frontiers of the new field of acoustic astronomy. From Kepler's sonified light curves of exoplanets to ALMA's musician's soundbank; harmonics of the Big Bang, to the bow shock of Earth's magnetic field, and new solar research from blind astronomers, we explore cosmic symphonics.
