Downtown Miami, October 26, Hurricane Sandy.

Hurricane Sandy (October 2012) originated off the coast of Africa, near the Cape Verde Islands. The disturbance drifted slowly across the ocean, joining weather systems in the Intertropical Convergence Zone ( known to sailors as the Doldrums), and through chance encounters with different atmospheric phenomena, enhanced by global warming, gradually formed itself as the huge storm. The waves of sound are made by digitally filtering and reinforcing the harmonic structure of a flute tone.
El Huracán Sandy (octubre de 2012) se originó en las costas de África, cerca de las islas de Cabo Verde. La perturbación derivó lentamente a través del océano, uniéndose a los sistemas meteorológicos en la Zona de Convergencia Intertropical (conocido por los marineros como las calmas ecuatoriales). A través de encuentros casuales con diferentes fenómenos atmosféricos, realzados por el calentamiento global, se fue formando como la gran tormenta. Las ondas de sonido se realizan mediante el filtrado digital y el refuerzo de la estructura armónica de un tono de flauta.
