The Lake Tahoe Sonification Project is a sound installation that represents multiple aspects of Lake Tahoe’s aural environment, both above and within the lake. Sonification is a fresh method of artistic representation, a way to hear the motion of the lake. Sound and science are fused to show a side of Lake Tahoe never before explored: sound waves as the embodiment of the waves of the lake, creating an absorbing experience for all who wish to listen.
Luigi Nono (1924–90) was an Italian composer, whose contemporaries included Boulez and Stockhausen.
