This paper examines the result of a laboratory analysis of mineral stones with metal properties that have had an impact on raising today’s civilisation. Through the artistic prism of intuitive perceptions and factual scientific analyses, in this case I present the process of creation of my research based art project New Europe and its poetic outcome from a scientific analysis of mineral stones. The project reflects the Change phenomenon, visibly - large geomorphic reliefs covered with mineral stones and Dark matter (unmaterial dimension of stones) shown audibly - two types of transmission of X-ray analysis into sound - music. How do mineral stones sound? The combination of reliefs, mineral stones and sounds creates a unique blend of material and energetically beneficial. The presentation focuses on the process of transmission involved from one medium to another, primarily on possibilities of the poetic outcome of scientific analyses - sonified X-ray data.
