Representative audience quotes following past performances
"I was hugely touched by your performance and had to hold back tears at the intensity and sense of urgency the music brought.."
"It's the most powerful, visceral representation I have heard or seen: Because through the rhythm-tempo-dynamics-pitch we embody the music, instead of just looking at and away from the data"
"It really translates into visceral terms a threat that can often seem impenetrable and abstract..."
“It was really powerful -- one of the most effective ways to communicate
climate change that I've seen”
"ClimateMusic has altered my perspective on climate change. The risks feel more immediate, more real..."
"What an amazing way to educate!"
"Really an impressive presentation...it was very stirring and it evoked strong emotions, which only good music can do....an amazing production really!"
"...I never felt as moved or motivated until I was able to sit through this experience. Thank you!"
"Holy Moses!...the music was so effective and beautiful..."
