“Weathersongs is a project to create music from the ever-changing patterns of the weather as recorded by an electronic weather station. The project has a number of elements starting from an installation which composes music in real-time through to musical interpretations of both real-time data and information collected over days or even months.
These project elements are as follows:
Real Time: Installation
The first phase of the Weathersongs Project was the construction of an installation which composes continually evolving music in response to surrounding weather conditions. The first version of the installation has already been built and is located in North Wales.
Real Time: Interpretations
The second phase is to take the real-time output of the installation and edit it to form shorter, more structured pieces, that reflect the weather at particular place and time. The plan is to release collections of pieces, each collection from a specific location, as audio CDs”.
