Lecture date: December 8, 2105. Marty Quinn, Wendy Quinn & Eddie Freeman discussed Symphony of Jellies, a project that translates the movements of sea jellies into music.

The Symphony of Jellies was developed based on an algorithm that tracks the movements of sea jellies and translates them into sounds. Marty Quinn, founder of the Design Rythmics Sonification Research Lab, developed software and hardware to capture sea jellies movements with digital video footage and translate them into sounds through a process he calls MoveMusic sonification. Composer Eddie Freeman of Icarus Music used those sounds to create musical motifs and orchestration. Aquarium President and CEO Dr. Jerry Schubel and Aquarium Trustee Dennis Poulsen served as advisors and partners on the project.
