Operating System Sonification at CMMR2013

October 24, 2013

Andy Sarroff, a colleague of mine, just presented a project of ours at the 10th International Symposium on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research in Marseille, France.

The presentation was about a system for sonifying Unix-like operating systems. Sonification is achieved using a Python-based message dispatcher which receives OS events from DTrace. In the demo events are sonified using ChucK, however any synthesis engine could substitute. The code is open-sourced and available on Github. I encourage interested parties to download the source, modify to their own preferences and share. For more details on the work, the proceedings paper may be found here.

Thanks to Andy for his hard work in creating and presenting this project. Here is Andy’s poster.
