Bileam Tschepe – Data Sonification - SS23 – 15 For Intermediate

July 12th 2023 6-9 PM (CET) / In English Language / Online via Zoom

Data Visualisation is a hot topic in these times of massive data aggregation. It helps humans to understand big amount of data by giving the abstract numbers a visual interpretation.

In this session elekktronaut aka Bileam Tschepe is going to take another approach and will explore the idea of data sonification. Of course, everything inside of TouchDesigner can be considered data and this session will look at different methods to turn digital information into sound. This stretches from “classic” data sources like data bases and table data of e.g. weather data to more experimental approaches to turn visual Information into music.

Join elekktronaut on his quest into the uncharted territory of data sonification.

After the live lesson you will get access to the recording and the workshop files for one year.
