Sonification-- like our Project Calliope satellite will do-- is taking the measurements of something and converting it to sound so you can hear the patterns and rhythms in an intuitive manner, rather than trying to figure out those patterns as numbers or graphs. It a way to remix data.
Apparently a TED talk discusses doing the opposite-- taking data and saying it is like sound. That's a step I'm not willing to take, but Janna Levin considers gravity waves a cosmological equivalent to sound. Err, okay? I suppose it's good enough for TED.
