The [Uncertain] Four Seasons brings new musical imagery to Vivaldi’s creation.
In this special performance, climate prediction data has been harnessed to reimagine Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in an ambitious multimedia collaboration between Australian composers, designers, innovators and scientists.
A Baroque masterpiece combined with the sounds of a changing world, The [Uncertain] Four Seasons warns of dangers, offers hope and inspires action.
The project is introduced by Damon Gameau, the filmmaker behind the documentary 2040, and draws on the work of prominent climate campaigners and authors Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac.
It builds upon the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra’s 2019 performance in Hamburg, which fused Vivaldi’s music with historic weather data.
The Australian premiere is a partnership between the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne composer Hugh Crosthwaite, Monash University’s Climate Change Communication Research Hub, design and innovation agency AKQA and German advertising agency Jung von Matt.
