The purpose of this symposium is to conduct a state of the art review of the use sonification within art projects, with a focus on the use of data taken from our surroundings (in a broad sense) as opposed to gestural interfaces or electronic instruments.
a) What distinguishes sonification from other forms of data mediation ?
b) What are the different ways in which sonification is used in art ?
c) What parallels, similarities, differences & contradictions exist between the use of sonification or audio display for technical & for artistic purposes ?
d) What differences in the artistic approach does the use of realtime as opposed to recorded data imply ?
e) What is the importance of the relationship between the source of data and the way in which it is mediated ?
