North Pole is a musical translation of a panoramic photograph realized in MaxMsp. A graphic score based on the photograph A Day of Never Setting Sun by Emil Schulthess and Emil SpĆ¼hler was created and interpreted to determine the pitch of four sine oscillators and to control the modulation of these oscillators. Pitch is determined according to the contours of the landscape and the resulting tones are modulated based on the height of the sun.
