Everyday we experience or can read about signs of climate breakdown. The Holocene, the stable climate of the last ~12,000 years, is reaching its end after 300 years of fossil fuel economics. We are entering a new and unprecedented geologic era.
How do we develop the focus to address a crisis whose resolution may be beyond our lifetime? In this talk, Judy Twedt presents new, data-driven compositions that help us train our attention away from our culture of short termism, and toward the multigenerational time scales of climate change.
Twedt came to climate music through science, in a doctoral program in Atmospheric Sciences and climate modeling at the University of Washington. After completing her masters degree, she shifted her focus to making music from climate data using a technique called sonification. Her climate soundtracks have been featured on the TED stage and in museums and radio shows around the world. She lives on Vashon Island with her partner, toddler, and two cats. Her family has lived on Coast Salish lands for six generations.
