In this class we will treat sound as an intermediary, translating back and forth between text/image/motion/thought and sound. We will explore the practice and pitfalls of mapping information from one domain to another, and will approach current trends in data visualization and sonification with skeptical eyes and ears. This will be a largely code-based class, and students will learn basic techniques for the collection, analysis, mapping, and synthesis of data in a variety of media and formats. Students will do several small exercises and studies, as well as an ambitious final project that deals in some way with the topics we have covered in class. The form of the final project is completely open; it might be a performance, a composition, a piece of software, a video game, etc. Collaboration is encouraged.

We will use a variety of free software packages in class (primarily Processing and Python), but students are welcome to do their work in any language/environment they choose.
