The journal Displays promotes dissemination of knowledge in “display technology and its effective presentation and perception of information”. For obvious reasons it has been publishing research dealing with visual display technology. However, the last two-and-a-half decades have witnessed the growth of auditory displays and their applications exposing a knowledge gap inhow data and information may be communicated sonically rather than visually. Sonification, is a branch of auditory displays concerned with the representation of data and information using non-speech audio. Sonification research lies at the intersections of a number of disciplines including computer science and engineering, perceptual psychology, physics, acoustics, music, and aesthetics.
