The EMM (Musical Weather Station) project, funded by the National Council of Culture and Arts of the Los Ríos region through the Fondart Regional for its 2017 version, consists of a sound installation that operates from a weather station located in the School of Architecture of the Austral University of Chile.
The weather station, located in an island in me middle of the Valdivian temperate rain forest in the south of Chile, provides live measurements of weather variables. Temperature, humidity, pressure, solar radiation, rainfall, direction and wind speed are used as numerical data for sound synthesis, the creation of rhythmic sequences and melodies using PureData software. Data is used in an interconnected way, creating sound variations according to the constant flow of these parameters, which both compose and articulate the sound composition.
This work is born from the observation of the physical manifestations of nature, its possible translation and path to visual arts.
