This thesis explores "Sonification" - the transmission of information via sound - as applied to gestural pattern recognition in the art of conducting. The first chapter examines how the aural sense has developed from a simple sense to allowing for understanding structured concepts such as language and music. Then, we look at the evolution of Sonification and sound attributes which are used in Sonification. Furthermore we explore concepts of Sonification and perception through audio, study gesture, find the connection between the two (gesture and sound) and how challenging this association can be. The final chapter is devoted to a practical application of gesture tracking in video as we see how to make use of motion tracking systems to make sound and music.
