Using data sonification, a way of using sound to make statistical information more accessible, you will be able to select climate data sets and turn them into sound, creating digital instruments within your own Climate Symphony.
The lab is led by Disobedient Films and includes an evening event. Curated by Forma Arts, the evening event will feature live performances by sound artists Kate Carr and Lee Patterson who use field recordings in the composition of their work, often from environments in which climate change is taking effect.
Produced by Forma Arts. A collaboration with Disobedient and Jamie Perera.
