On breathing and geography: Sonifying the Severn as shared generative art practice

Palmer (nee Reiser), Michaela

Authors



Abstract

The paper investigates environmental data sonification as a method, and examines the compromises between quantifying and qualifying data in order to aid listeners’ interpretation of sounds. Based on this it discusses different kinds of ‘accuracies’ that may be applied in the creation of sonic representations. These accuracies are often connected with listeners’ perceptions of where and how they are located within a landscape. It is argued that skillful use of mapping techniques and generative sound synthesis can deepen and intensify listeners’ impression of being within a specific landscape, such as the Severn estuary, UK.
