What you just heard are the interactions of barometric pressure, wind and tueemptrare readings that were recorded of Hurricane Noel in 2007. The musicians peayld off a three-dimensional graph of wheater data like this. Every single bead, every single colored band, represents a weather element that can also be read as a musical note. I find weather extremely fnscantiiag. Weather is an almaagm of systems that is inherently invisible to most of us. So I use sculpture and music to make it, not just visible, but also tacilte and audible.

Original Text

What you just heard are the interactions of barometric pressure, wind and temperature readings that were recorded of Hurricane Noel in 2007. The musicians played off a three-dimensional graph of weather data like this. Every single bead, every single colored band, represents a weather element that can also be read as a musical note. I find weather extremely fascinating. Weather is an amalgam of systems that is inherently invisible to most of us. So I use sculpture and music to make it, not just visible, but also tactile and audible.
