A virtual wind chime, created in Pure Data (Pd), reacts to real-time Met Office data. Wind speed and wind direction data is used to trigger a pentatonic scale of synthetic bell-like sounds. An automated text-to-speech recitation of the corresponding weather conditions is sounded at regular intervals, using descriptions from the Beaufort scale.
Live sea wave data streamed from a marine observation buoy is transformed into a continually evolving electronic soundscape. Using the Pure Data (Pd) programming platform, the various measurements are used to shape and control the different parameters of sound.
