WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up) Nineteen Thirteen “Hurricane Noel”

“Stormy Weather”,  indeed. Music is often more dynamic when associated with emotion, and it’s not relegated to human ’emotion’, alone. Mother Nature’s many shifts and ‘moods’ inspire musical composition and local musicians, Nineteen Thirteen recently honed in on the force of the hurricane to create a unique piece which will have its radio debut this Sunday on Hal Rammel’s Alternating Currents program on WMSE. Janet Schiff, cellist of Nineteen Thirteen says, “We made music from interpreting weather data from Hurricane Noel, collected by a sculptor, Nathalie Miebach.  Nineteen Thirteen performed and recorded this interpretation at MAM [The Milwaukee Art Museum] on April 15, 2011.  Nathalie also turned the weather data into a sculpture with a basket weaving medium. ” The recording has also been recently exhibited at TEDGlobal in Scotland. Read more details on making music from weather data, here, and tune into 91.7 FM WMSE on Sunday, to hear “Hurricane Noel” in its radio debut. Nineteen Thirteen performs next Saturday at 4 p.m. at Woodland Pattern Book Center for the Milwaukee Music Marathon.
