The Big Data Sing

A song cycle by Martina Schwarz, commissioned by UCL Culture in 2017

….Throughout the evening, the Big Data Choir performed a number of big data related renditions, composed and conducted by Martina Schwarz, in the majestic Grant Museum of Zoology.
Songs about the opaque and mysterious nature of cloud storage solutions, and the ridiculous number of zeros associated with various units of data storage (yottabyte, anyone?) were among the most amusing hits, and provided a welcome respite from the mind-boggling topics being discussed……
All in all, Big Data Sing was one of the highlights of the Transformative Technologies Festival. The mixture of academic discussion, debate and music proved to be a hit, and the audience members went home with enhanced understanding of a defining feature of the modern world: big data. (Excerpt of the “Big Data Sing” report by Oliver Patel (UCL Culture 08/17))
