The NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra wanted to use the power of music to let people hear the consequences of climate change. With a team of software developers and music arrangers, they adapted Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to today’s weather conditions, using custom-built algorithms and 300 years of climate data to recompose the masterpiece. For Seasons premiered to the world at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg. Soon, the voice of climate change achieved a reach of 1 billion contacts, with For Seasons now a partner of the United Nations Development Program. The score is freely available to any orchestra in the world.
