We held a two-day workshop at IRCAM, May 30th and June 1st 2012, to brainstorm on possible sonification of every-day objects. Every participants brought two objects, that were analyzed and discussed. On the second workshop day, experiments using sensors and real-time synthesis were carried-on on a selection of objects.
