»Sublime Frequencies: sonification discourses in science and art«
In recent decades, sonification has become increasingly popular in the domains of art and science popularisation. In this talk, I argue that sonification grips public imaginations through the promise of sublime experiences. In the public discourse surrounding sonification, sound is often situated as immersive and emotional, in contrast to the supposedly detached sense of vision. Thus, the idea that sound has no place in specialist science is reinforced, inadvertently undermining the efforts of sonification researchers to establish sonification as a scientific method.
