A new concept album from mathematician and musician Dr Valery Vermeulen will be released on Friday 3rd December.
The concept of the album is an electronic audio-visual experience made from data sonification of black holes.
The album titled ‘Mikromedas AdS/CFT 001’ is made up of three tracks, with all of them experimenting with the natural wonder of a gravitational singularity.
Dr Vermeulen’s album has been signed to London based record label Ash International, with the publishing and licensing signed to Touch Music. Dr Vermeulen has become renowned for combining art and science through the conversion of data streams from black hole models. This is achieved through data sonification.
For the project, Dr Vermeulen joined forces with several academic partners. This included key contributors and physicists Prof. Dr Matthias Kaminski and Prof. Dr Thomas Hertog.
The album was made utilising simulations of black hole mergers, gravitational waves, neutron stars, and elementary particle behaviour near black holes and white dwarfs.
