A weeklong installation showcasing the Tahoe Sonification Project — which draws on data collected by scientific researchers through an array of sensors in Lake Tahoe, and transforms that data into audible sound — will open Sunday.

The exhibit will be at Third Space, 946 Olive Drive in Davis. An opening reception is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday.

The Lake Tahoe data collected by scientists involves the motion of waves, and the temperature of the lake water at different depths. The water in the lake periodically “turns over” on a seasonal basis, sometimes in a relatively rapid and spectacular manner. The data were collected by the Tahoe Environmental Research Center.

The Tahoe Sonification Project aims to “embody the motion of Lake Tahoe through sound so we all may listen to and understand the lake in a way never before experienced,” according to the project description.

“By creating aural landscapes, we can listen to the movement of the water over broad time scales, thereby gaining the ability to listen to a day’s worth of pressure changes in only a few minutes.” As a result, listeners can “hear patterns and cycles that may otherwise be hard to realize from mathematical analysis.”

The sound installation features interpretations of the data by graduate students Philip Acimovic, Gabriel Bolaños, Fang-Wei Lou, Alex Van Gils, Matt Gilbert and Kevin Corcoran.

The Tahoe Sonification Project installation will be on view at Third Space through Sunday, April 13. Hours are variable, but in general, Third Space is open from 6 to 10 p.m. Call 530-341-0540 for details.
