Desiree D’Alessandro – Cognitive Sonification

Cognitive Sonification consists of a series of interactive public performances that aim to convey information and perceptualize data through sonic experimentation. A number of hand-crafted, unconventional instruments will be constructed and operated by volunteers who will play each instrument’s basic set of notes according to their own undisclosed algorithmic parameters. Thus the resulting tracks will derive not from aesthetic or musical decisions, but from statistics observed and interpreted by each individual; in essence, making their inaudible thought-process audible, yet still shrouded in mystery.
