Sonification of Stanley Cup goals
Artist Bard Edlund sonified the goals during the 2012 Stanley Cup.
The goals tally cumulative scoring for each team (rather than goals against). When a puck crosses the goal line, a musical note plays. There's one instrument sound for Western Conference teams, and another for Eastern Conference teams. Higher-seeded teams are assigned a higher pitch. This means you can actually hear whether higher- or lower-seeded teams are scoring more, and if Western or Eastern Conference teams are producing more goals.
The beat in the background almost makes it sound like an actual song.
