Data Sonification with Loud Numbers

Online event

In short, data sonification is the art and science of turning data into sound. The team behind the «Loud Numbers» podcast, Miriam Quick and Duncan Geere have gone a step further: they’ve turned five different data stories into music that you'd hit "play" on more than once. In their presentation, they will share their learnings from producing this series of episodes and how the principles of sonification might be applied to other contexts.
