Disobedient Films with Jamie Perera.
2 Degrees Festival produced by Forma Arts
Climate Symphony is a live music performance that turns hard data on climate change into a symphony to tell the story of what climate change means through sound.
Two day-long labs at ArtsAdmin's 2Degrees Festival and Newcastle's Star and Shadow bring together journalists, scientists, data analysts and sound artists to explore how to change climate change data into a sound and music composition. Using data sonification, participants will select climate data sets and turn them into sound, creating digital instruments in their own Climate Symphony.
The idea is to encourage participants and the audience to question their feelings and the stories behind the data, creating new conversations and engagement.
Climate Symphony was presented at the Global Health Film Festival 2015, OpenTech 2015 and the Serpentine Transformation Marathon 2015. The first data sonification testbed was launched at ONCA 2016, and two day-long participatory labs will take place in June and July 2017 supported by Forma Arts and Arts Council England.

"Research shows that sound touches us in inexplicable ways. By using music, the hope is to create an emotional response to something that for many might look meaningless on a page."
