Flood Tide: sonification as musical performance—an audience perspective [Book Review]

AI and Society 27 (2):189-195 (2012)
The number of events and artifacts described as sonification has increased considerably in recent years with some works making a bridge between the representation of data and artistic expression. Flood Tide which sonifies the flow of tidal water is such a work and has achieved a relatively high profile attracting good audiences for its 10 performances to date. It is not entirely obvious however what it is that attracts audiences and whether it is effective at representing the data being sonified. This paper aims to address these issues and is based on a discussion group in which these and other questions are considered
