Abstract: Smart cities are urban areas with sensor networks that collect data usedtowards efficient management. As a source of ubiquitous data, smart cityinitiatives present opportunities to enhance inhabitants urban awareness.However, making sense of smart city data is challenging and there is a gapbetween available data and end-user applications. Sonification emerges as apromising method for the interpretation of smart city data and the productionof novel musical experiences. In this paper, we first present the smart cityparadigm. We then cover the topics of ubiquitous and mobile music, followed byan overview of sonification research. Finally, we propose an approach entitledubiquitous sonification and present the initial design of a speculative usecase for musical smart city systems, leveraging user and urban data to informbehaviour.
