Abstract / Description of output

Synthetic Pulsar (Speculative Sonification) looks at the pulsar as a dazzling multi-dimensional object of scientific and creative focus. While the pulsar tra- verses a wide range of disciplines – astrophysics, radio technique, and sound technology – the workings and nature of such an object can never be fully cap- tured, hence remaining incompletely understood. Proposed work probes this complexity through a process of speculative data sonification: amplifying, mod- ulating and augmenting astrophysical data - sourced from the European Pulsar Network - within an original implementation of pulsar synthesis program (nuPG) designed by the author.
