Weather Thingy – Real time climate sound controller

Created by Adrien Kaeser at ECAL (Media and Interaction Design Unit), Weather Thingy is a custom built sounds controller that uses real time climate-related events to control and modify the settings of musical instruments.

The device consists of two main parts, a weather station on a tripod microphone, and a custom built controller connected to the weather station. The station has 3 climate sensors including a rain gauge, a wind vane and an anemometer. The controller is equipped with a brightness sensor and an interface allowing it to assign the various parameters received to audio effects. The controller transforms climatic data into midi data which can be interpreted by instruments.
