    Aeolian Artefacts

    Amid the history of sound instruments, it's possible to find an ancient drift in service of expanding human sensory to increase the understanding of natural forces, including structures and devices that took advantage of natural forces, such as wind current and ocean waves: these environmental agents represented entities with own will that informed about natural cycles or premonitory capabilities. Comparably, in our present times, networks of hybrid computer sensing systems could be used to provide an expanded knowledge about climate transformations on a planetary scale.

    The present project consists of a sonic artefact, designed to create an Augmented Listening experience based on wind forces and radio signal transmission: where any change in an outdoor environment is used to drive a generative live sonification that is transmitted back on real time over FM radio to the outdoor environment. The work proposes an speculative approach on potential correlations between wind forces and electromagnetic transmissions, and a notional interspecies communication channel.
