Science and music unite to highlight climate change

A father and son have combined their talents in a novel initiative to raise awareness of climate change through sound.

Flinders University Emeritus Professor of Oceanography Matthias Tomczak and his son Sebastian, a lecturer in music technology at Adelaide University’s Elder Conservatorium of Music, have turned climate change data into a “music video”.

Their idea was to explore the possibility of using sound to impress the urgency of acting to avid climate change.

They presented their sonification of climate change data to the closing ceremony of the 25th AMOS National Conference and 12th International Conference for Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography, a joint conference of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanography Society and the American Meteorological Society.

Listen to the Presentation of Climate Change Through Sonification of Climate Data.
