It’s time to tell Mark Twain to shut up: everyone still talks about the weather, but this time someone’s doing something really rad about it. Georgio Sancristoforo is the creator of the “Tableau”—your brand-new audio version of Borges’ Book of Sand, written by the earth’s weather.

The music on the PGLP (Portable Generative LP) is a recorded reaction to magnetic fields and atmospheric pressure, humidity and temperature, and runs ad-infinitum. Your average sunshine pop couldn’t capture a sunny surf day any better, and since it’s a battery-powered, fully portable device, you can easily find the meteorology of choice to listen to.

For more on music and the weather, swamp-tech oddball Quintron created this unique instrument.
