Ethan Rose: Elements

What if the weather can drive the sonic environment inside? Similar to John Luther Adams’ The Place Where You Go To Listen, Ethan Rose has constructed a locally weather driven sound installation.  The piece translates wind speed, temperature, precipitation, and sunlight, into an emergent sound field that mimics what we see outside.

Preliminary test to push California weather station data onto a map using Processing. Taking sixteen Western Regional Climate Center (WRCC) stations from 1870-1900 and displaying their location and collected daily temperature information on the map as concentric circles (size and color). Thanks to WRCC for helping with collecting station information.
