Synthesizer transforms weather into live streamed ambient tunes

by John_A

What if you could use a locale’s current weather conditions to make ambient music? Well, that’s precisely what New Orleans-based artist Quintron did. The Weather Warlock is an analog synthesizer that gets its input signals from variations outside, monitored by a collection of meteorological sensors. When employed, the set-up can produce sounds based on changes in temperature, wind, sunlight and rain, using a pleasant E major chord as the base and piping in unique tones for sunrise and sunset. Oh yeah, it’s also constantly live streamed over the web so you can get some background noise whenever you like. The goal is to eventually have a handful of stations scattered across the globe so that listeners can enjoy a variety ambient weather-based tunes. For now, you can enjoy the broadcast after the break.
