Sonification Platform for Interaction with Real-Time Particle Collision Data from the ATLAS Detector
SonART is a flexible, multi-purpose multimedia environment that allows for networked collaborative interaction with applications for art, science and industry. In this paper we describe the integration of image and audio that SonART enables. An arbitrary number of layered canvases, each with independent control of opacity, RGB values, etc., can transmit or receive data using Open Sound Control. Data from images can be used for synthesis or audio signal processing and vice versa. SonART provides an open ended framework for integration of powerful image and audio processing methds with a flexible network communications protocol. Applications include multimedia art, collaborative and interactive art and design, and scientific and diagnostic exploration of data.
