This piece combines live visuals, climate change data and musical performance to create
a compelling experience that attempts to create a more emotional presentation of climate data.
The work was co-developed with Dr. Nicholas Papador, who scored the accompanying marimba solo. The
visuals were coded in Max/MSP and were largely driven by a dataset of global average temperature. The
dataset was broken into three segments that resulted in three movements of the performance. The data
was presented as a chart on screen, an coresponded to and increases in brightness of a red background.
As the temperature increased, the red glow became more intense, eventually filling the performance hall with
an uncomfortable and ominous feeling of warmth.
