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.
