Turn data on climate change into sounds, collaborating with artists, scientists and data analysts.

What is the sound of a dying planet?

Spend a day with journalists, climate scientists, data analysts and sound artists and collaboratively explore and discover how to change climate change research data into a sound and music composition.

Workshop leaders include artists:
Freya Berkhout
Danny Keig
Jamie Perera

Workshop specialists include:
Mat Atkin, Sheffield XO Labs
Clare Brass, RCA
Dr Joanna Boehnert, Research Fellow in Design
Philip Brohan, climate scientist
Jamie Carr, Cambridge Conservation Initiative
Dr Ed Hawkins, climatologist
Tessa Ratuszynska Price, artist
Mark Simpkins, digital designer
DJ Tendril, sound artist
Cecilia Wee, RCA

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.
