Kick-Off Weekend | Technology and Applied Composition
Erik Ian Walker
Listen to the sound of climate change in this performance of data driven music and sonifications.
Working closely with scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, student, faculty, and alumni musicians wrote custom software to translate historical climate data and predictive data models into electronic instruments and musical parameters. With this data as the seed, the musicians will present a range of remarkable compositions that explore the urgent issue of climate change through sound.
This concert is presented as part of an ongoing collaboration with The ClimateMusic Project, whose mission is to communicate a sense of urgency about climate change by combining climate science with the emotional power of music to drive meaningful action.
Following the performance, we will have an open Q&A with SFCM musicians and climate scientists from the Berkeley Lab.
