Culture Lab Newcastle, Saturday 8 July 2017

What is the sound of a dying planet? 

Climate Symphony is a creative lab that turns hard data on climate change into a symphony to tell the story of what climate change means through sound. 

Spend a day with journalists, climate scientists, data analysts and sound artists to collaboratively explore and discover how to change climate change research data into a sound and music composition. The day culminates with a live illustrated performance by leading sound artist Jez Riley French who uses field recordings in the composition of his work, often from places affected by climate change.

Please RSVP to Philippa Barr on pb@forma.org.uk by July 1st. Limited capacity so please book early. 

Climate Symphony is supported by the Digital Cultures Research Group, Culture Lab, Newcastle University digitalcultures.ncl.ac.uk. Climate Symphony is devised by Disobedient in collaboration with Jamie Perera and co-produced with Forma
