Hello again. After a long recess, I decided it was time to continue. My first post is a very simple sonification. This short sonification in the BBC tracks the value of the Pound Sterling around the Brexit. The pound was rallying quite well in the run-up of the referendum but after the shock result of the Brexit victory, When the result came in, the pound went down significantly.
The mapping of this sonification is fairly simple: the higher the pound, the higher the pitch and vice versa. The bell is the sampled sound of the Big Ben. While musically maybe not that interesting, it is a very clear sonification to understand. You can listen to the sonification BBC website.
