Mark Ballora, who holds a joint appointment in Music and Theatre, has co-authored a Huffington Post article on sonification (rendering scientific datasets with sound). His sonifications of astronomical and physiological datasets have been used by percussionist/ethnomusicologist Mickey Hart as part of performances of the Mickey Hart Band, and on their album Mysterium Tremendum. You can learn about Mark's research first-hand on Saturday, April 6, 11-noon, as part of the college's 50th anniversary celebration. Visit to register.
