SCORe: Using Sonification to COmmunicate public health Risk

The SCORe Project was funded by the Centre for Chronic Diseases and Disorders (C2D2) of the University of York, supported by the Wellcome Trust, and aimed to find new ways to communicate health information to young people effectively using interactive media.

We particularly investigated the use of sound and music in alcohol-related interactive health communication applications. This project built upon a previous public engagement project Jane’s story-Chronic health issues of adolescents: is the world listening? which portrayed the journey of a young woman with a chronic medical problem through a 360-degree narrative, sound and visual piece.
