WEATHER WARLOCK features a musical instrument built by New Orleans artist and musician Quintron. The instrument is a large analog synthesizer which is controlled completely by the weather and employs sun, rain, wind, temperature, moon, and lightning to affect an E major drone chord with special sonic events occurring at sunrise and sunset.

This project was completed by Quintron during a May 2014 Robert Rauschenberg residency in Captiva Florida.

Most recently the Weather Warlock was installed for sunset performances in the Brooks Museum of Art in Memphis Tennessee and in a lower 9th Ward Church in New Orleans.
