The Stellar Choir

The Stellar Choir is an interactive choir of roughly 8,500 "singing" stars that has been built from an early data release of star light curves by NASA's Kepler Mission. These curves were discarded as targets for the search of extra solar planets because of their high degree of variability. To build the sounds, a day of light measures was compresed into a second of sinusouidal sound; and changes in light flux were translated into changes in the pitch of the sound. Find more details about how the choir was built in the History section.

The Stellar Choir has been recently included in the Official NASA Kepler Mission website, in both the sections of Education and Audio Gallery.
