Building on the recent success of the 3Sixty project “Is the world listening?”, the team led by Sandra Pauletto (sound design, sonification) and Amanda Mason-Jones (public health) proposes to further explore data related to the chronic health of adolescents using sound design, data sonification (using sound to display data) and music with the aim to promote public engagement.
This project will explore the best ways to present health risk data so that the result is both engaging and accurate. We will utilise film music and sound design methods widely understood by audiences (e.g. ability to direct listener’s attention and communicate important elements of a message) to support data sonification. The project’s outputs will be a methodology and a set of strategies for presenting data that will be transferable to other datasets.
