    Human listening is incredibly well adapted to recognize patterns within sound, interpreting it by multiple layers of meaning and even distinguishing simultaneously sounding “auditory objects”. This is an ability that is not completely understood, but it proves that human auditory system can process data in a complex, yet flexible way. Different disciplines have come to using the auditory system as a channel to transmit multi-dimensional information by transposing it into sound in a process called Sonification, leading to the formation of a dedicated branch of interdisciplinary research around it as core component of Auditory Displays.
    This essay will examine different sonification case studies, analyzing their technical and structural features while bringing evidence of the importance of design aesthetic in auditory displays and reflect on the role of sonification as art form. In order to familiarize the reader with the theories behind sonification, a brief overview over auditory displays will be proposed, introducing perceptive and symbolic issues in auditory interface design and underlining elements of connection with contemporary sonic practices.
