I Feel the Earth Sing Under My Feet

Search carefully among all the noise about Mel Brooks and Young Frankenstein, and here and there you find another form of the monster peeking through.

Today a new Mac-based software package is announced online worldwide: Maestro Frankenstein 0.4b, called by its makers a “multitrack data sequencer to map scientific timeseries data to notes or musical control values.” In other words, this is “a tool for the creation of geophonic music—music from geologic data.”

The Music of Our Sphere—er, Globe—I love it.

And so would the monster.
