PROGRAM NOTE:

The video for this piece, captured in summer 2013, consists of time-lapse photographs depicting the extreme dynamics of the west Texas landscape. The majority of the electronics in this piece are fixed, but I also built a computer program that receives data from the McDonald Observatory in west Texas. For each performance, the software translates the temperature data from the prior day into a new layer of audio that colors the piece differently depending on the season. For example, in the summer the software generates a brighter, more vibrant sound and in the winter a darker, denser one. The temperature data is not a metaphor; rather it directly connects the visual and auditory experience with the current natural energy of west Texas.
