Black holes, those infinitely dense remnants of collapsed stars (and quick possibly portals to…somewhere else), are infinitely fascinating to astronomers, cosmologists, and physicists. Valery Vermeulen is a Belgian mathematician, lecturer, and electronic musician who has just finished an electronic music album made entirely of data gleaned from observing black holes.
Working with Prof. Dr. Thomas Hertog (a long-time collaborator of Stephen Hawking), Vermeulen collected gravitational wave data for the project and converted it into audio. The album, Mikromedas AdS/CFT 001, will be out on December 3. Find more at Bandcamp where you can pre-order the album. It’ll be out December 3.
Here’s a preview.
