Sonification and Visualization are strong allies. They are not opposed to each other. A quick look over the literature regarding sonification it becomes clear that there is a wealth of material that is linked to the investigation of relationship between sonification and visualization. There is strong subjective evidence and research support to conclude that the combination of these two sensory modalities do foster an increased information yield and more meaningful user experience that is more representative of reality.


Scot Gresham-Lancaster is a composer, performer, instrument builder and educator who is on the faculty at ATEC UT Dallas in sound design. Last year at IMéRA he worked on 2nd order sonification of data sets. As a member of the HUB, he is an early pioneer of "computer network music" and cellphonia "cellphone operas". He has created a series of "co-located" international Internet performances and worked developing audio for several games and interactive products. He is an expert in educational technology.
