The Hottest Year on Record

data sonification on vinyl record
Data from the Global Mean Temperature Anomalies* (departure from the 1880 – 2006 base period average) are used to manipulate loop-based samples from George Harrison’s “Here Comes the Sun.” Each sound loop is a time sample representing one year. The speed at which the loop is played is relative to the Global Mean Temperature Anomalies for the year the loop represents.
