About

What is Osmoscape?

“OsmoScape” explores a graphical notation score, where data and graphs related to water have been arranged to form a sound score and a book.  The found data was then converted into an image using processing code that becomes the visual bases of a score, leading eventually to sound compositions being constructed out of user engagement via a WebApp, exploring a new way of archiving 55 datasets with their stories and sounds.
