The LSCO crystal structure.

At a recent meeting in Philadelphia I heard about the ‘Sound ∩ Science Podcast Contest’ Read: The intersection of sound and science being held by the US Department of Energy (DOE) titled, described as ‘[…] an opportunity to share the excitement and mystery of science using sounds.’ I had a quiet hotel room evening ahead of me and an idea forming in my mind, so I set about creating a piece of music from my research data to enter.

Now my entry is complete and submitted, I though I’d take the time to write a few words about the science behind the music and a few of the creative decisions made along the way.
