The Art of Data Sonification
Learn how to turn data into sound! Dan Tapper will teach participants how to apply different data sonification techniques, collect and produce a variety of sonifications, and how to creatively use these sonifications in their own work. The workshop will move from looking at data sonification through the lens of Dan Tapper’s work sonifying data sets from NASA, to collecting, cleaning and using your own data for artistic creation. Participants will work with pre-gathered and cleaned data sets before collecting and working with personal data and online data sets. Tools will be provided by Tapper created in Pure Data and Processing, as well as versions for Max/MSP users. A particular focus will be placed on how to use data sets and the created sonifications in creative practice - moving beyond quantitative sonic representations to richer material.
Dates: Tuesday January 15 & 22
$90 (With Annual Studio/Workshop Pass)
What, if any, prerequisite knowledge should students have? No prior knowledge is required, but if you are familiar with Processing, Pure Data, Max/MSP, or other programming environments, that will be an asset!
What to bring: Please bring a laptop and a pair of headphones, and install Processing and Pure Data before arriving at the first session. If you would like to use Max/MSP in place of Pure Data, that is fine as well.

About the Instructor: Dan Tapper explores the sonic and visual properties of the unheard and invisible. From revealing electromagnetic sounds produced by the earth’s ionosphere, to exploring hidden micro worlds and creating imaginary nebulas made from code. His explorations use scientific methods alongside thought experiments resulting in rich sonic and visual worlds. You can see more of Dan's practice on his website at https://dantappersounddesign.com/
