You don’t have to look far to find pictures and infographics that visualise data to make us understand it better. But musical representations of data are harder to come by.
Developer-musicians Nicholas Tollervey and Simon Davy have taken footfall data provided by the Leeds Data Mill and turned it into music for brass band (yes, you read that right).
Their lunchtime lecture was a loud, fun and thought-provoking exposition of open data manipulated via the programming language Python into a meaningful musical medium.
Nicholas is a programmer, classically trained musician, philosophy graduate, teacher and writer. Simon is a percussionist with a PhD in Artificial Intelligence. He currently works in Leeds as a computer scientist.
