So often the data showing the ecological impacts of climate change are presented in graphs, tables or complex pages of text. However, a collaboration by two Stanford PhD candidates has created a sonification of forest change over two summers in Alaska. Each tree species is represented by a different instrument in the first piece, whereas the second piece of music is the yellow-cedar and the increasing silence is the sound of climate change. The silence is the areas with dead yellow-cedar, killed by warming temperatures and outcompeted by other tree species. Quite a haunting piece.
