Science meets Music

As part of the Sound of Data project, Luxembourgish researchers collected scientific data then used by local and international musicians and composers to generate new tracks during an artist residency mentored by Valery Vermeulen. The result of this creative, innovative process and these musical compositions were presented during the project closing event on 3 December 2022, followed by the unique contribution of the project’s artistic partner Valery Vermeulen and electronica icon Max Cooper who unveiled his new album during an immersive live show.
