99 Julys


99 Julys is an interactive, algorithmic, improvised piece of music, presented at Welles Park Chicago on July 20th 2017 as part of the Inferno Movements series and Night Out In The Parks. Composer Joshua Dumas built custom software to translate Chicago weather, water, and population data from the last 99 Julys into a series of chords and brief melodies. For this presentation, there was an interactive music station where the public was encouraged to pop on some headphones and join the performers in their explorations.
