aka PAM, the Parochial Audio Messenger. An off-spring of Jens Brand‘s Global Player project where sound is generated based on the earth’s topography. Rather than following satellites, here the track is derived from the phone number the visitor dials, which points to the target location. The resulting sound is played to both ends of the phone line.
What’s the sound of a giant turntable needle scratching across the earth’s surface? Find out by listening to the G-Player4 where satellites are tracked in realtime to mark a path across a world-wide topography. Data (altitude samples) from the SRTM Space Shuttle mission (2000) is interpreted 1:1 as audio data (amplitude samples).
