Doppler Music

What if you could tell the weather by listening to a tune?

This project from 2003 is a piece of software can import the current doppler radar image and “play” it back like a record. Playing on the sweep of the radar, it generates a unique MIDI chord depending on the color it encounters. Via OSC and MIDI you can hook it up to any synthesizer that accepts MIDI: a drum machine, a Moog emulator, lighting systems—the possibilities are endless. Made with Shockwave Director 8.
