In this E-Lecture Dell’Aversana discusses how digital music technology can support geophysical data analysis and interpretation: we apply accurate mathematical transforms for extracting the spectrograms of geophysical data, such as seismic, electromagnetic and gravity data, well logs and so forth. Then, the spectrograms are translated into sounds in standard musical formats and are imported into a software platform of digital music. We apply two complementary workflows to our converted “geo-musical” data: first, we use musical pattern recognition algorithms for automatic data mining and classification; second, we use interactive audio-video display in selected portions of the data set for allowing multisensory perception and advanced cognition. During the E-Lecture we introduce the fundamentals of the approach. Finally we show some applications to real data.
