Recording A Tutorial
How to Sonify Data
with the Highcharts Sonification Studio
Another project I worked on as part of my continued collaboration with the Georgia Tech Sonification Lab was to record a sonification tutorial.
The Highcharts Sonification Studio a sonification web app co-created by Georgia Tech and Highcharts, and is designed to make data sonification accessible to a wide range of users. There is an archive of tutorial videos on the HSS Tutorials YouTube Channel, explaining how to sonify data using the application. 

There are many contexts in which simple data sonifications can provide useful insight. One example is in the classroom, where a teacher might be explaining a basic math or physics concept. If an instructor were able to not only show a lesson visually on the white board, but also play an audio representation of it, the concept could be further instilled in students' minds. 

To demonstrate this kind of example, I recorded two sonification tutorial videos:
1. How to create a sonification for the concept absolute value
2. How to generate a data set in R that can be used to follow the absolute value tutorial

Creating these videos gave me a greater sense of appreciation for all the people that contribute to the world of YouTube with high-quality how-to videos. It was challenging to simultaneously record my voice while demonstrating everything I was doing on my computer. I wrote a narration script, but found that if I adhered too closely to it, my tone of voice and delivery came across slowly and robotically. Next time, I will go for a more natural vocal delivery and efficient demonstration flow!
