Musicians from different cultures come together to consider the impact of climate change in an evocative programme

NW Live Arts’ dynamic musicians explore the sounds of our planet – music of the air, sea, sky, forests and landscapes – in a programme Bartok and Messiaen, free improvisation, new composition and music from West Africa and South Korea. Underlying the music are the questions about how much we value our connection to nature and how we can find a way to help the planet to restore.
