Auditory displays present information through sound. As part of an auditory display, the process of rendering information and interaction as sound is called sonification. Sonification can take many forms and be applied to many different problems: from understanding radiation through the clicks from a Geiger counter to developing the complex sound language presenting information in some computer games today. The study of sonification is very developed and a scientific community with expertise in sound synthesis, big data, user interaction, computer science and cognition (among others!) has gathered together around it .
