Symphony of Satellites
Science Hack Day SF 2013
Symphony of Satellites is an app that generates music based on the trajectories of satellites currently overhead. As satellites appear and disappear over the horizon musical notes rise and set. The velocity of the satellite, its elevation, and other aspects of its trajectory determine the instrument, pitch, and rhythm of notes generated by that satellite and the visualization on the page.
