The “Wind” project is a real-time digital sonification by Damian Stewart that uses wind to generate musical compositions in real-time. The project was built with a consumer quality DV camera, tripod, and a custom software application that feeds raw data to a Pure Data patch that applies it to an array of oscillators tuned to a pentatonic scale. Interesting use of nature as an input and the resulting sound is pretty soothing.

Love it! What this could do for other natural spaces (clouds, running water etc.)!
Pretty cool, but I have something similar in my backyard that processes wind into sound without electricity or technology (very green). I call it a “wind chime.”
