Nothing to do with interpretation here..
That's what air vibrations are commonly called, yes. Physically it's still just vibrations, and you don't hear anything until the brains interprets the incoming data as sound. If this wasn't the case, then why can you hear sound and see color in your mind when dreaming, for example?

Vibrations in a medium and the frequency of photons are physical properties, sound and color are interpretations of these.
