NATHALIE MIEBACH

I translate weather data into musical scores, which are then translated into sculptures as well as being a source of collaboration with musicians and composers. These pieces not only map meteorological conditions of a specific time and place, but are also functional musical scores to be played by musicians. For some examples of collaborations I have done with musicians, please visit the Weather Scores site or explore some of the musical samples below.

   

The Burden of Every Drop
Watercolor
16”x20”, 2018

This musical score is about Hurricane Maria and is divided into four sections. It integrates numerical weather data with anecdotal data from newspaper articles and documentary films about the aftermath the of the storm.
