The Sound Of Neurons

"Introducing Neuronoiz - where biochemistry, audio signal processing and art intersect! The bursting and spiking of brain cells is mathematically simulated, implemented as a sound synthesis algorithm, and then the synthesizer used to play all the parts in a short piece of music.

"Another fascinating method of sound synthesis is the 'sonification' of any natural process that displays periodicity. There are plenty of physical, chemical, biological etc processes like this - examples include coupled chemical reactions, geothermal eruptions, earthquakes, cyclical populations of predator and prey animals, and firing nerve cells.

Typically these processes are described by a differential equation or system of differential equations which are difficult, if not impossible, to find exact solutions to. For the purpose of 'listening to the processes' however, approximate solutions involving numerical methods are sufficient.

The 'sound of a firing nerve cell' is a concept which captured my imagination immediately, so that's what I've explored here. The result - NeuronoiZ"
