The Music: Created by determining the various wind speeds of woodwind and brass instruments. Those instruments were then added together in various ways so that they equaled the wind speeds of Hurricane Sandy at different points in time. The notes were determined by correlating in/sec with Hz and converting to musical note frequencies. Each beat represents one hour.
The Visual:Satellite images of Sandy organized chronologically and stacked on top of one another. The width of the image is proportionally related to the speed of the storm. The thinner the image, the faster the storm was moving. This allows the slow scroll to be more representative of the storm.
