Information Sonification
Information obtained from data processing and presentation form an increasingly large part of modern scientific, economic,  industrial and artisitic research. The sheer volume of data produced by many simulation and data gathering activities can change the nature of research including intractable analytical problems and unmanagable data sets. read more...


SoniPy is public-domain project we initiated for developing computing resources for data sonification through a Python user–interface. Currently it is primarily used to effectively process and sonify large or complex datasets. 

We conduct research in information sonification, specialising in large and time-critical time-series analysis of data from the capital markets, electroencephalograms(EEG) and computer networks, for example. 

Public Presentations
To enhance data presentation, especially for artistic practice, we use state of the art output capabilities, including 3D immersive ambient environments.

If you have a project that you think data sonification could be useful, or you are interested in contributing to th development of SoniPy, please email us.

*soniculation is a portmanteau of sonic and articulation; a term used to describe sound design whose principal purpose is to articulate the information being sonified as clearly as possible,  rather than for the sheer beauty of the sound or other artistic expressive purposes. The term was coined largely to cover the somewhat ambiguous term scientific sonification which seems to have fallen out of  favour. Coined in 2007 by experimental composer and sonifier  David Worrall  Other definitions and descriptions can be found in the Glossary of Terms.
