Numerical time based sound composition

Time and Space: Foundation 33, Daniel Eatock, Timothy Evans

“Exploring the point at which an audio experiment/composition becomes visuals, or the point at which a visual composition becomes audible. The project moves in the realms of the concrete, where the visual is inseparable from the audio, one is not complete without the other. “

Explanatory text reads

“A digital time display counts to one hour using four units: seconds, tens of seconds, minutes, tens of minutes.

A numerical sound composition has been constructed using the ten sequential digital: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Each digital has been assigned a tone. The tones are mathematically selected from a range of 20hz to 20,000hz – the two extremes audible to the human ear. The tones are logarithmically divided between the ten digits providing tonal increments that produce a musical scale. Every second a different combination of four tones is defined by the time counter.”
