STELLAR aims to create a sonic representation of stars and constellations through a dedicated interface. Since there’s no sound in space, the artist wanted to conceptualize a link between electromagnetism and sound waves. The goal was to create a minimalistic, interactive device which would allow visitors to learn about specific stars through sound information.

The audio contents are generated by three synthesis engines working with different sonification data. Details of triggered stars and constellations work as parameters that generate the sound experience, together with data analysed in real-time from the weather of the actual location.
The visual content is real-time generated and features the actual colours of the triggered stars.
