Navigation of data in perceptive ways is a highly complex endeavor that is mostly achieved through visualization. Sonification, the representation of data by acoustic means, is a critical alternative and complement to visual approaches that becomes essential when the data space is large. From an artistic perspective, sonified data are also raw elements for a compositional process that transcends the materiality of the original information in a post-sonification praxis: the data stream is open for elaboration as principal element of a data-driven compositional environment.
In this talk I will discuss both aspects, the scientific and the artistic, of data sonification, drawing examples from my own creative research in both Music and Science.
