Project Description: 
Western music is built on patterns, such as repeating melodies, call and response, and changes in dynamics to mark changes in states of intensity. This musical expression and pattern-seeking has direct connections to cybersecurity research in fields such as anomaly detection, “attack and defend” scenarios, and the dynamics of viral distribution. The researchers will reimagine and depict the results of cybersecurity research through the innate human ability to detect auditory patterns, both temporally and spatially.
