Monsoon Station

Monsoon Station is a real-time weather music project that generates sonic landscapes from changing atmospheric condition data. In addition to normal temperature, wind speed, etc., Monsoon Station uses radiosonde (weather balloon) data from NOAA and Skew-T chart and lifted index numbers to compose music based on certain “closed gaps” (temp and dew point close to each other) at various altitudes, which produce cloud formation types.

Monsoon Station debuts at the Cococino Center for the Arts’ CUMULUS: The Art of Meteorology exhibit, running June 29-Sep 28.
