Icarus in Flight
Musical composition

A collaboration of musicians, scientists, artists, technologists, and public policy specialists, the ClimateMusic Project creates multi-sensory performances of science-guided music, combined with visual and data animations. Three years of successful live performances and audience feedback have demonstrated that this “hearts and minds” approach effectively sparks new insights and motivates a desire to take action to mitigate the impact of climate change and foster resilience to climate-related disasters. They say of Icarus in Flight:

The goal of Icarus in Flight, as with all our compositions, is to improve understanding of the risks of climate change and the urgency of taking action, and to motivate audience members to take meaningful steps in their lives and communities to reduce the risk of a climate crisis and improve resiliency.
