PRiSM: Changing Music in a Changing Climate

In January this year, PRiSM (The RNCM Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music) invited students working in climate / environment science to collaborate with RNCM students in composition and performance, on pieces inspired by contemporary climate and environment issues.

To watch the show visit Live from the RNCM.

  1. Three Perspectives by Simon Knighton
  2. Seed Semilla by Nara Garcia
  3. Parts Per Billion by José Del Avellanal Carreño
  4. helix by Xia Leon Sloane
  5. Planetary Boundaries – Human Needs by Tywi John Hywel Roberts
  6. Honest Environments by Deane Smith

Workshops brought the scientists and musicians together, led by PRiSM Artists in Residence, Sarah Nicolls and Laura Bowler, who both create artistic work on the climate and ecological emergency. This digital show will premiere the resulting pieces with introductions from Sarah Nicolls, Laura Bowler, the composers and the climate scientists.

For more about the ongoing collaboration, see here.

We would love to hear your feedback and will respond to questions about the show @RNCMPRiSM on Twitter #ChangingMusicClimate.
Thank you to Freya Mitchison for providing the images used as a header and thumbnails for the project web pages. They are diatoms (photosynthetic algae) that lived between 2-15 million years ago, recovered from Southern Ocean sediment cores. Diatom species, assemblages and shell chemistry help scientists to understand past ocean conditions and how the Antarctic ice sheet evolved through time.

This free event will be streamed Live from the RNCM. To watch, please click on the LIVESTREAM button below.
*Please note that this event is only available to watch live and will not be available to watch again after the broadcast.

Our free events series is only possible thanks to our amazing students and partners. Please donate what you can to ensure we can keep performing through these challenging times.
