Data sonification

This work is an introduction to the interactive visualization "Deep into the animal extinction" related to the Atlas project (1) and presenting the number of animal species entered the IUCN Red List of endangered species. The aim of this project is to represent data through different sounds notes.
WHAT IS IT?
This is a sonification related to the data about animal extinction from 1996 to 2013 where every class (mammals - birds - amphibians - fishes - reptiles) is represented by a different note of a B minor chord, the number of repetitions of every note depends on the number of species for the corresponding class.
