Sound of Climate Change from Amazon to Arctic
Based on surface temperature analysis from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the composition "Planetary Bands, Warming World" uses music to create a visceral encounter with more than a century’s worth of weather data collected across the northern half of the planet. (The specific dataset used as the foundation of the composition was the Combined Land-Surface Air and Sea-Surface Water Temperature Anomalies Zonal annual means.)
The pitch of each note is tuned to the average annual temperature in each region, so low notes represent cold years and high notes represent warm years.
