Facing The Music
Collaboration with Ruby Craner-Buckley
The undeniable correlation between depletion of natural recources and increased extreme weather events means we are starting to witness the effects of our actions. Natural disasters, unnaturally severe weather patterns and the frequency of them, means we are constantly bombarded with reports of devastation and desolation. We have become dessensitized to this information beecause it has become the norm. To combat this disengagement, this musical piece immortalises the recent disruptive Storm Dennis, to preserve the event, making sure that the urgency for action does not blow over once the storm passes. Within the project, MET Office data was recorded then interpreted to correspond with musical notes, resulting in an appropriately ominous melody. The outcome for this was a short video and a riso printed publication.
