BALTIC Podcast | Climate Frequencies: Episode 1 - Ear to the Ground

Publication Date 18 Oct 2021

Episode 1: Ear to the Ground

Climate Frequencies is a new series of the BALTIC Podcast that listens to the climate emergency and its reverberations through the ears of artists, thinkers and activists.

The series begins deep in the molten core of the earth, tunnelling through the rock formations under our feet before burrowing up to the soil and land, through forests, and out to the oceans ascending to our final episode into the air we breathe.

In this episode, musician and artist Natalie Sharp heads deep into the bowels of the earth to listen to the rocks and minerals forged in the substrata. She asks how they might influence our idea of time, how we think about our past, present and future, and if they even have the potential to heal us.

Sound artist and musician Kelly Jane Jones reflects on our connection to the natural world through the sound resonance of rocks. Author of Notes From Deep Time Helen Gordon discusses how geology allows us to step back into our planet’s history to draw lessons on how we might approach the changes in climate. Architects Miriam Hillawi Abraham and Nasra Abdullahi share their time-travelling short story from the perspective of the rock formations in the east African rift.

Presented by Natalie Sharp. Produced and sound designed by Femi Oriogun-Williams and exec produced by Alannah Chance for Reduced Listening.
