Project Description

Visual Music

Visual Music is part of the Celestial Celebration: Music, Art, and Technology collaboration with the Richardson Symphony Orchestra (RSO) and the Chuck Eisemann Center. ATEC faculty and students produced nine works of Visual Music to accompany the performance by the RSO. The pieces were created using data visualizations of actual astronomical phenomena: star systems, colliding galaxies, and cloud nebula using the work of Dr. Donna Cox and her team from the Advanced Visualization Lab (AVL) at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Students: Catalina Alzate, Jessica Godwin, Sean Landers, Kyle Strickland

Faculty: Christine Veras (project lead)

Special Thanks: Dr. Donna Cox and the team from the Advanced Visualization Lab (AVL) at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
