Abstract

Hour Angle is a musical performance generated by the movement of the sun. The position of the sun in relation to Earth is calculated in terms of its declination (north south component) and hour angle (east west). The gradual changes in these values are converted in real time into musical notation performed by live musicians. Sonification of the moment of summer solstice with an ensemble of 16 orchestral musicians.
