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 Fifteen Ships of Georges Banks 20"x20"x20", 2015 Reed, wood, rope, data

3D musical score that juxtaposes the meteorogical behaviors of Hurricane Noel as it passed through New England with a fishing shanty called "The Fifteen Ships of Georges Banks". Data sources used are those of an ocean buoy located on Georges Banks and the story of the shanty.
