Simonne Jones is an electropop artist with a scientific background. The multi-instrumentalist has a biomedical degree and worked in a genetics research lab before turning to a music career. Popular Science profiled her earlier this year when her EP Gravity was released, and the album includes songs like “Gravity” and “Spooky Action” that show off her scientific bona fides.
Popular Science also commissioned her to create a song that used sonifications of research data. The result is called “Alchemy” and includes data from the Large Hadron Collider and the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory that has been converted into sound. You can listen to it online, but my ears weren’t discerning enough to pick out the scientific sonifications.
