Atmospherics/Weather Works is an interdisciplinary project in the sonification of storms and other meteorological events generated directly from atmospheric data produced by a highly detailed and physically accurate simulation of weather systems. This paper discusses the background, conception and execution of the first stage of the project that has resulted in several performances, stereo recordings, a multi-channel spatialised sound installation, and an interactive sound environment.
