Abstract [en]

This study explores the possibility of using musical soundscapes to facilitate reflection on the impacts of climate change. By sonifying historic and future climate data, an interactive timeline was created where the user can explore a soundscape changing in time. A prototype was developed and tested in a user study with 15 participants. Results indicate that the prototype successfully elicits the emotions that it was designed to communicate and that it does influence the participants’ reflections. However, it remains uncertain how much the prototype actually helped them while reflecting.
