Sonification and STRAUSS

"Sonification" is the process of conveying data via the medium of sound. Sonification can be used to make scientific data more accessible to those with visual impairments, enhance visualisations and movies, and even convey information more efficiently than by visual means. The STRAUSS python package is intended to make sonification simple for both scientific and outreach applications.

Getting Started

Access the full documentation here (under construction!) and read more about the associated Audio Universe project here.

Make a copy of the STRAUSS repository via SSH,

git clone git@github.com:james-trayford/strauss.git strauss

or HTTPS if you don't have SSH keys set up,

git clone https://github.com/james-trayford/strauss.git strauss

STRAUSS may then be installed using pip

cd strauss

pip install .

For development purposes, you can instead use:

pip install -e .

where the -e option allows a local install, such that you can modify and run the source code on the fly without needing to reinstall each time.

We recommend using a conda environment to avoid package conflicts. Type

conda env create -f environment.yml

before pip install -e .

and activate the environment with

conda activate strauss

Acknowledgments

STRAUSS is developed and provided free and open source, supported by a UKRI Early Stage Research and Development Award, grant code ST/X004651/1. The STRAUSS code has also benefited from funding via an Royal Astronomical Society Eduaction & Outreach grant award, providing hardware and software for sound development and spatialisation testing.
