The first CD album of music from Richard’s Weathersongs Project, entitled Weathersongs Volume 1: Days in Wales, was released on March 28th 2006.
Days in Wales is an album of 14 short pieces of music derived, in real time, from the weather conditions in Southern Snowdonia on 14 different days over one year. Each track was electronically generated by a computer program connected to an electronic weather station at Richard’s home in the foothills of Cadair Idris, North Wales. Selected output from this installation, was then edited and recorded to make the CD.
The music ranges from the gentle ambient electronica of a cool spring morning to wild, almost Free Jazz, saxophone as the westerly gales of autumn hit Cardigan Bay.
