‘Back to the Future’ writer, a Cardinals fan, discusses prediction of Cubs winning 2015 World Series

i

If the Chicago Cubs end their 107-year championship drought this season, they might owe some of the credit to a fan of their biggest rival.

That’s because the 1989 movie “Back to the Future Part II” predicted the Cubs would win the 2015 World Series, and the man who wrote the screenplay and imagined this unlikely scenario is Bob Gale, a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan. In a sport where players and fans believe in curses, jinxes and superstitions, maybe it’s not so crazy to think a movie has somehow spurred the Cubs to the brink of history.

Similar to the fingerprints of humans, every sound in the natural universe has a unique, vibrational ‘signature’. TheCymaScope is a device that detects these vibrations and embodies them in a digital representation, allowing us to actually see these audio fingerprints, and they are truly amazing. The CymaScope produces its visualizations by directing the vibrations of different sound frequencies toward a surface of liquid- water, alcohol, et cetera. It then digitally captures the geometric vibrations in the water, producing these beautiful images and making sound visibly interpretable.

Bartholomaus Traubeck, a musical artist, has mastered a new form of music: tree music. He makes it by simply playing trees on a record player. Rather than use a needle to record the sound, sensors are placed to gather information about the wood and turn it into piano notes.

Each true sounds very unique due to the wide variety of characteristics of the rings, like their strength, thickness, and the tree’s overall rate of growth.
