Music in the Stars – Research Abstract – Anne Katherine

This is my working research abstract for my paper.

In this experiment the Lyman-alpha forest data of two quasars was used to create music. The music was used to learn about the quasars. Through a series of calculations Ly-a forest frequencies were transformed into sound frequencies. In the final score each piece of Ly-a data was used to create an individual music note. This technique proved to be effective, and interesting sound was produced. The properties of music are discussed. The analysis of the sound and the relationship between the data and sound patterns are discussed. Based on observations in this experiment, all Lyman-alpha forest can be translated into sound that qualifies as monotonic music.

Keywords: Lyman-alpha forest, music, composition, quasar, frequency
