Greg Kramer and Scot Gresham-Lancaster discuss the field of sonification–the use of non-speech audio to convey information or perceptualize data. This conversation deals with its origins and possible uses in the future.

Bio: Gregory Kramer is a composer, scientific researcher, author, entrepreneur, and teacher. He is a founding figure in the emerging field of Sonification and published the first book in this area,”Auditory Display: Sonification, Audification and Auditory Interfaces” (Addison Wesley) The definition of sonification that everyone studying this field reads was written by Greg. While a researcher at the Santa Fe Institute he became fascinated with this idea of turning data into sound and started the International Conference on Auditory Display, chaired the ICAD 92 and ICAD 94 conferences and co-Chaired ICAD ’96. His area of concentration has been sonification of high dimensional systems, immersive interfaces, and understanding how we can listen to complexity. Kramer has stepped away from his work in this area to concentrate on his meditation teaching “Insight Dialogs” with the Metta Foundation . Pointer to his current practice
