Avco's Daniel Jackson has created a sonification in collaboration with musician and audio programmer Tim Venison for the BBC series Volcano Live.
These audio clips were produced from data taken from the Soufrière Hills volcano in Montserrat between April 2005 and May 2007, during which time the volcano was erupting continuously. Three different kinds of measurements were taken - the sonification combines seismic, sulphur dioxide and GPS data.

NMC launched our updated Music Map at the Southbank 20x2012 New Music weekend.
Avco was commissioned to add social media, embedding functionality to the Music Map to allow seemless integration of the map into any website or blog. The map is now transportable much in the same way as a YouTube video.
We are proud to present a new website for NMC Recordings.
NMC approached us to create a fresh informative website for their organisation promoting and exploring the NMC recordings.
We made plans to show off their music catalogue.
We took a fresh look at their identity and pared it back to the identifying band across their recording covers. This gave breathing space to the website for the very many splendid and varied LP art covers.
Next was the important matter of bringing music to the website. We placed featured audio up front on the homepage banner and each recording page has a 1 minute excerpt for each track.
NMC wanted their visitors to go on a musical exploration so they gave us an open brief to build a 'Music Map'. Our response was to create a dynamic relational map featuring their composers and recordings, weaved into the site and acting as an alternative view of the catalogue.
