THE SOUND OF DATA – Science meets Music

3 Décembre 2022

The sound of data
Do you want to hear what scientific data sounds like? Eager to discover the fascinating links between science and music? Then Rockhal on Saturday, December 3rd, is the place to be for the final event of the Esch2022 project “The Sound of Data – Science meets Music”.

For the Sound of Data project, Luxembourg researchers collected scientific data, which was then used by local and international musicians and composers to produce music during an artist residency under the supervision of Valery Vermeulen. You can discover the outcome of this creative and innovative process and see the musicians perform live on stage on December 3, along with Valery Vermeulen and headliner Max Cooper, a leading figure in electronica, who will present his new album in an immersive live show!

The program of the evening comprises two parts:
