the sonification covers life in the climate crisis.
If you want to know about the effects of the climate and ecological crises, all you have to do is look around you.
That’s what we do at the sonification, just with more microphones than you might usually carry. We also read the environment sections of major newspapers a lot, even though it’s so boring that we literally started our own news platform out of desperation.
We believe that climate journalism should be centred around the human experience of living through the climate crisis.
