I made this patch in Pure Data to sonify and visualise the weather station data online at the University of York’s website (weather.elec.york.ac.uk/). I wanted to give the sound/visuals a narrative that could be easily understood.
Working on a Pd patch that parses weather information from a station in York. What to do with all these numbers? See the station here on Google Maps.
“david ca%%%%: scottish conser%%%%” is an audio visual exploration of the effects of a condem government on britain as they implement ideological cuts and dissolve any notion of a “fair” society. data-corruption is used as an allegory for this social erosion and the effects are sonified to give an audio image of this.
the process: pure data generates pseudo-random values between user-defined ranges; these values are sonified and used to create pitches and effect the timbre of audio. these values are simultaneously used to corrupt a jpeg image to produce an animation of data and societal breakdown
Finished a quick midi LFO patch for monome today. You “draw” the LFO waveforms on the monome and Pd sends it as midi control information. Get it here.
