This thesis deals with the use of sound in interactions in the context of participatory systems and data sonification. We investigate an interactive environment where participants perceive information of the data through sound elements. To define the interactive process, we employ the dialogue model, breaking it down into three components: subject, verbal, and adjective. This supports the purpose of having a better understanding of the topics addressed in this thesis: i.e., interaction models, data sonification, interaction & design, and evaluation of data sonification. Moreover, it contributes new findings and perspectives to these topics
