Journey across the surface of a DVD

This work used custom software to imagine what it may sound like to be shrunk to the size of a needle tip and follow a straight line across the surface of a static DVD. The resulting audio is something similar to pushing a needle abruptly across a spinning record. However, due to the impossibility of being able to physically do this with a DVD, the procedure has been carefully mathematically reconstructed, by analysing the structure of a DVD. In a sense the work attempts to turn the miniature landscape of a DVD surface into a piece of sonic land art
