Making Music from Data

Presented by

Judy Twedt, University of Washington (WA)


Data sonification is the representation of data with sound. It can be the first step in data-driven music composition and song-writing, or can be used in information processing. In this workshop I'll introduce the concept of data sonification, show examples of how we have used it to create engaging music and infosonics about climate science, and give a short tutorial on how to sonify a simple dataset using python and garage band.
