ClimateMusic - Using Music to Discover and Be Proactive in New Dimensions of the Climate Change Response
Stephan Crawford and his team of musicians and, all heroes I might add, unraveled the natural progression of human "development" over recent time exploring modeled data beyond the current day through a didactic and scientific music you must hear to understand.
ClimateMusic is a new genius, that improves upon the musical ability of classical greats like Debussy, because:
ClimateMusic instills so much more than wonder, fear and excitement about our environment than traditional approaches to music - the urgent message for me was:
Compose yourself, and act with purpose.
I sincerely wish to promote this engagement so that a growing community of activists can gain momentum in various arenas to influence the discussion and action on the issue locally and globally using grassroots.
The stellar group of musicians (piano, synth, violin and others) interpreted the feeling of the data about our Earth's life forms' crucial health indicators modeled in terms of CO2, temperature and key energy pollution metrics. these laid bare a truth to the audience over the course of 25 minutes - the problem can't be ignored and we can't drown it out - beginning somewhere in the 1800's continuing on into the distant 2200's until 2300, here we stand between our past and future as a specie part of a larger community.
What could you do to revolutionize the way you see humans adjusting to environmental change. How do you see yourself as a responsible part of the climate improvement solution?
Why is this relevant and why does my response matter?
Your response matters because all of our responses to the issue matter - few issues can be more urgent to human life as a whole than this one, and our ability to enact change on the issue has never been greater, because the planet is reaching a level of understanding and real technical capacity to be able to shift its focus away from the day-to-day crises of leadership and daily human needs using the old system, to do more with less, and not be another victim of the "tragedy of the commons", a word I heard so much in school, now forgotten in the world we live in - a consumerist mess driven sadly by the need to create to consume - a cycle we can't break, but one that we can influence tremendously to help our future provide for itself.
