WEATHER SCORES

A collaboration between science, data, musical performance and sculpture

Since 2009, I have been collaborating with musicians and composers from a variety of musical traditions and experiences in performances. The core of the project is a series of musical scores entirely based on weather data, which are adapted by composers to musical performance. In conjunction, these scores are also translated into woven sculptural, data translations that also function as 3D musical scores. More can be found on the Sculptural Musical Score page under portfolio.

It is important to me to support these incredibly talented musicians and composers, which is why I have included all their websites below. Please visit their sites by clicking on their names.
