The armillary sphere is an ancient device used to measure the movement of celestial bodies. In my installation, I decided to change the function of the device by transforming it into a controller that allows for managing the orientation of the celestial spheres. I collided it with a virtual model of the Solar System and linked each planet moving in space with a sound generator previously tuned according to its ten basic physical parameters. There are meteor showers and the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) recordings also sonified by me. All this gives the viewer the opportunity to explore the Solar System sonically.
