Abstract
‘Anthropocene in C Major’ is a visceral experience of human impact on earth, felt through a live performance that turns data into sound.

Over 45 minutes we travel from 12,000 years ago to the present, hearing human breakthroughs from the invention of the wheel to the Industrial Revolution and beyond... but also inescapable data trends that tell of our exploitation of the planet, and each other. At what now seems like a breaking point for our species, what can we learn from listening to the past, and what meaning can this bring to our present and future? Anthropocene In C Major provokes a response to climate change for a species paralysed by its own extractive structures. It invites us to confront and understand our own ecological and systemic grief, through the form of sonification, and within the scale of our modern existence on Earth.
