Soundscape Installation: Weather Systems Composition

Variable 4 (6:22) This is a documentary short about a generative outdoor sound installation based on translating weather patterns into musical patterns in real time, by James Bulley and Daniel Jones. With the use of meteorological sensors connected to a custom software environment, the weather itself acts as conductor, navigating through a map of 24 specifically-written movements.

Every aspect of the piece, from broad harmonic progressions down to individual notes and timbres, is influenced by changes in the environment: wind speed, rainfall, solar radiation, humidity, tropospheric variance, temperature, and more. The resultant composition is performed over a 24 hour duration through a field of 8 speakers integrated into the landscape."
