Related to this, our friends at Georgia Tech (collaborating with us on PhET projects) has an eclipse sonification project as well.

You can find the live stream on this page at the Sonification Lab<http://sonify.psych.gatech.edu/research/eclipse/index-test.html>.

More information can be found in this news article "Researchers Use Eclipse Data to Create Musical Composition<http://www.news.gatech.edu/2017/08/18/researchers-use-eclipse-data-create-musical-composition>" at the Georgia Tech website.

"On August 21, 2017, millions of people will view a total solar eclipse as it passes through the United States. However, for the visually impaired, or others who are unable to see the eclipse with their own eyes, the Eclipse Soundscapes Project delivers a multisensory experience of this exciting celestial event. The project, from NASA’s Heliophysics Education Consortium, will include audio descriptions of the eclipse in real time, recordings of the changing environmental sounds during the eclipse, and an interactive “rumble map” app that will allow users to visualize the eclipse through touch."
