Dr Nigel Helyer, also known as Dr Sonique, has a fascination with data sonifications. “I’ve done quite a lot of projects where I build a really big audio library, maybe in certain categories,” he said. “It might be environmental sounds, local music, aural history archival sounds or from early radio in that area. You create the material to make an audio portrait but then I link that through a computer system to data collection software.”
