Climate symphony turns data into sound

A new project is doing something a little out of the ordinary: it’s turning climate data into sound. The idea behind ‘Climate symphony’ is to translate hard data on climate change into a musical composition that engages the public — encouraging people to question their feelings and the stories behind the data, and create a conversation. By using music, the hope is to create an emotional response to something that for many might look meaningless on a page.
