The digital wind use the metaphor of the wind. Both real wind and wireless networks alike, change their direction and strength. The „Digital Wind“ instrument transforms the wifi signal of a building or room into sound. As feedback the visitor can hear a real wind sound. A stronger sound corresponds to a better quality of the signal. By walking around with the instrument in his hand, the visitor can interact with the invisible medium around him. He gets a feeling for the strength and shape of the field that is sourrounding him, and thereby gradually becomes a more conscious musician. Having several people interact with multiple instruments, creates an ensemble of wind sound.
