Understanding a Perspective About Color of Gravity

If we can help ourselves see the world in "new ways" why not allow ourselves such freedoms? See how it extends our views on what we have always "thought about" moves us beyond "the way" in which we have measured all things?

To “hear” the data we can map physical properties (The Data) to audible properties (The Sound) in pretty much any way we choose. For a physicist, an obvious way to do this might be to map speed to pitch. I think this is obvious for a physicist because both of these things are measured “per second” (pitch or frequency is measured in Hertz, which means vibrations per second). But we don’t have to do the obvious, we can map any physical property to any audible property.

In this example I’m going to map speed to the pitch of the note, length/postion to the duration of the note and number of turns/legs/puffs to the loudness of the note.

Now I have to choose starting positions and ranges. When I do this I have to consider that:
How to make sound out of anything.
