Electric Dreams: Anthropocene in C Major

• Science
United Kingdom • Adelaide Fringe Premiere

'Anthropocene In C Major' is an immersive 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. '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 grief, through the form of sonification, and within the scale of our modern existence on Earth.

Music composed, produced and performed live by Jamie Perera, accompanied by Julian Ferraretto

Please note: The performance on 19th has changed times from 7:00pm to 8:00pm since the Adelaide Fringe Guide was printed.
