This paper explores the relationships between sound and its visualisation, focusing upon the issues of representation and interpretation of music through both performative and machine processes. The discussion proceeds in the context of recent works by the author exploring the representation of sound and musical notation and their relationship to and with performance: Issues examined include: resonification of spectrograms, visualisation of spectral analysis data, control of spatialisation and audio processing using spectral analysis data, and reading issues related to scrolling screen score notation.
