The Radioactive Orchestra [Video]

*nor FTFY

To help illustrate the process of radioactive decay, Swedish nuclear scientists and musicians teamed up and formed the Radioactive Orchestra, which translate the isotopes’ different energy levels into sound frequencies. The result is questionable in terms of listen-ability, but the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology and the Nuclear Safety & Training organization’s project overall is interesting and new.

This video shows how nuclear scientist Bo Cederwall, musician Axel Boman, and artist Kristofer Hagbard worked together to translate the radiation into music. (It’s not in English, but since you’re reading this you can probably handle the subtitles.)

And if you have a mind to make your own, head on over to the Radioactive Orchestra’s site, where you can do just that.
