Music composed using data from goals scored during the 2012 NHL playoffs

Animated ambient data visualization of all goals and penalties of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs.

"There's one instrument sound for Western Conference teams, and another for Eastern Conference teams. Higher-seeded teams are assigned a higher pitch. This means you can actually hear whether higher- or lower-seeded teams are scoring more, and if Western or Eastern Conference teams are producing more goals. A melodic loop of lap steel guitar plays in the background, tying the sounds together into some kind of pseudo-ambient, pseudo-listenable music." More info here.
