Tempest Tunes

The sound of a tempest, simulated through the speed of the wind during
a car drive, was captured out of a window in thin glass tubes of various lengths
and a small microphone placed inside the glass. The glass tubes recorded
the blow of the wind up to 210 km/h, the wind speed of a hurricane.
Each tube produced unique sequences of whistling tones and noises, steered
by the blow of the wind during the recordings. These sounds are then played
back by small speakers inside the tubes. The fragile construction leans forward
in the space, fixed on pivot arms and hold up by single threads from the ceiling.

glass tubes: each 1,5 cm x 140-230 cm, variable dimensions
