Exploring the interface effect in distant sonification
I introduce ongoing research into the method that I am calling distant sonification as a response to understanding abstractions created through computational reading. My aim is to explore the interface effect and situate it in sonification and media theory. Discussing existing prototypes, I contextualise the visible interfaces within the wider design models, such as patterns, and computational materiality. Reflecting on experiments in media specific analysis, I suggest that there are different models with their own specificities that are brought together to create the interface. They might exist separately or are combined to create a wider effect that I explore through models and grammars. I suggest that there are different models with their own specificities that are brought together by humans and machines through layers.
