The image is the display from a frequency analyser. Low frequencies at the bottom, high at the top. The image was turned into sound by additive sine synthesis with each line of the image modulating a sine at a note frequency in the equal temperament scale starting from C0 at 16.35 Hz all the way up to 19.9 kHz, 124 half steps away. Horizontal resolution was selected to be 10 pixels per second to lessen the spread of the low frequencies in the analyser display.

Administrator Note: I think Jim Davis could write electronic music for 1950s style science fiction movies!

Original strip: 1978-11-19.
