Data visualization - telling stories about data using graphics and animation - is a popular technique, and new tools, both proprietary and open source, appear almost daily, as do huge datasets to analyze.
But there's another way to explore large datasets - by mapping the properties of data points into music. This technique is called _*sonification*_, and adds another interesting dimension to exploratory data analysis.
In this presentation, I'll briefly describe the main techniques of sonification, then present some examples where sonification was key in understanding the story behind the data. And, of course, you'll get to hear the music that's in the data.
