Following a research visit I made in the spring of this year to the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics at the Kunst Uni Graz, Robert Höldrich and I have been collaborating on a new sonification technique that picks out regions of interest in a signal while preserving the original temporal regime. Called Direct Segmented Sonification, it leverages the directness of audification while using a modified auditory graphing approach to sonify segments of the original data signal while preserving the original temporal regime. Read more on the DSSon project page. From there you will find a link to the project’s github repository which contains source code and audio examples. A paper on the technique is currently under review.
