Sonify innovates at the intersection of audio, data and emerging technologies. We design and develop audio-first products and data-driven solutions.
Sonify was founded in 2019 in New York City and is now based in Vermont. We believe in the power of data, audio and emerging technologies to drive deeper connections that extend impact, reach and engagement.
We provide training, production and R&D&I services to design and develop audio-first solutions for human-computer interaction. Our work combines elements of data sonification, sound design, interaction design, spatial audio, VR/AR, AI and Voice.
As the world gets faster and data gets bigger, sound allows for the convenience of multitasking without having to look at a screen and can provide accessibility for people who are blind or visually impaired and other groups. As an audio-first company, our goal is to complement rather than replace visualization methods by adding the option of listening to amplify understanding.
Sonify’s mission is to research and test methods to better communicate data with sound, to complement rather than replace visualization methods by adding the option of listening to amplify understanding.
The company was a recipient of the Knight Foundation’s “Data For Civic Engagement” award and engaged in a year-long initiative that empowered newsrooms to create data-driven sonifications to enable storytelling that was accessible to users who are blind or visually impaired.
