During his residency at Wave Farm, House will invoke the spirit of a town striking clock for the electroacoustic community created by the WGXC transmission. At regular intervals, a short musical piece will be broadcast. However, this piece will not simply count off the hours like a striking clock — rather, it will be the sonified data of online and physical phenomena within the geographic broadcast area. Data will be gathered from many sources: online content platform APIs such as Twitter, Flickr, etc, filtered geographically; macro environmental measurements including weather and astronomical phenomena; and local sensor systems placed on the grounds of Wave Farm measuring ambient acoustics, motion, electromagnetic qualities, and other conditions.
