Music for the climate
How does the musical interpretation of the Earth's temperature rise sound? Can you hear the difference between wind power and solar power? Music for the climate combines live music and speech to present facts and theories in climate and sustainability research in an unconventional way.
The Academy of Music in Malmö's big band provides the music, and students from the Lund University Center for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS) guide the audience through the performance.
Music for the climate is a project run by composer and music teacher Claus Sörensen from Malmö Academy of Music and sustainability researcher Sara Brogaard, based at LUCSUS, Lund University. They both believe that music's ability to affect people on an emotional level can contribute to an increased commitment to the change that is underway.
