Sonification of visual data /

Sonification refers to the process of translating data into sound.
This project is an experiment. The concept was inspired by the idea to be able to translate the object through sound using visual image  as a map. 
By using music to represent data, the listener is exposed to many different interpretations, such as audio-visual and electro-acoustic, orchestral, instrumental - scored and improvised. The goal of this work is, by sonifying the chosen Tree, to investigate its actual sound property, 
to be able to hear its own music – the music that is encoded in nature, and which the human ear is not able to perceive.
