suNEARth is a performative talk about radio astronomy data of the sun as a resourceful field for sonification and multi-wave imaging. The identified fine structures and events observed in the solar corona, like radio bursts and spikes, juxtaposed to phenomena present on the Earth’s surface, like rhythmic vibrations in sound and light. Those fine structures in sun are important because they give information about the vibrant dynamics in the Sun, even during solar minimums, while field recordings of the earth give information about the continuous changes in the ecosystems.
