Economic Fluctuations

February 3, 2011

For 2 Violins & Tape.

The pitches for the violins are generated from economic statistics, such as the rate of inflation, migration and the live register. The tape sources include the austerity measures protest Nov 2010 and Dail Eireann sessions.

The aim of the piece is to highlight public frustration through the sonification of real data and statistics and also illustrate the divide in the perception of the government and that of the public.
