I'm a physics lecturer at the University of Toronto and co-founder of SYSTEM Sounds, a sci-art outreach project that converts the rhythm and harmony of the cosmos into music and sound. Our work has been featured in The New York Times and in Calm, and we frequently collaborate with NASA. In the summer of 2019 we were artists in residence at Toronto's Museum of Contemporary Art and the Ontario Science Centre where our interactive exhibit The Sonic Orbiter is currently on display.
I recently created the sound-based planetarium show Our Musical Universe that takes the audience on an audio tour of the cosmos from the night sky all the way out to the edge of the observable universe. It features music and sounds created with a variety of astronomical systems and is accessible to the visually impaired.
