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.

 

Hurricane Noel II
paper, cardboard, bamboo, data
9’x6’, 2010

This musical score tracks the path of Hurricane Noel along the Eastern Seaboard as it traveled from the Haiti all the way to Nova Scotia. Written in two parts, the prelude translates weather data of cities along the coast, while the main score focuses on Noel’s behavior within the Gulf of Maine.
