Disobedient & Forma Arts: Climate Symphony Performance

Photo by Kate Carr

7.30pm. £5.

What does climate change sound like? Listen to a symphony of found sounds collected from areas on the frontline of climate change.

What is the sound of a dying planet?

Climate Symphony turns hard data on climate change into a symphony, telling the story of what climate change means through sound.

The evening will include live illustrated performances by leading sound artists Kate Carr and Lee Patterson who use location recordings captured in the field in the composition of their work.

The performance includes an audio visual exploration of Ólafsfjörður, a small fishing town in northern Iceland. The set explores the way weather patterns are enmeshed in the experience of home and place by combining field recordings of iced fences, snow, ice melting, wind, boats and blizzards with recordings of traditional Icelandic sea songs performed by the local choir of the town.

Produced by Forma Arts. A collaboration with Disobedient Films and Jamie Perera. Sound Art Performances curated by Forma Arts. Supported by Arts Council England and Sculpt the Future Foundation.
