The Moody Center for the Arts and the Center for Energy and Environmental Research in the Human Sciences (CENHS) present a selection of musical works by musician and composer Matthew Burtner and the collective EcoSono as part of the 2018 Rice University Cultures of Energy Symposium. This innovative multimedia performance addresses climate change and the role the arts can play in shaping conversations around the future of the planet.

Founded and directed by Burtner, EcoSono is a nonprofit environmental arts organization that comprises environmentalists, musicians, and artists working for environmental sustainability and human creativity in collaboration with nature. They will perform together with Loop38, a local collective of passionate musicians bringing new music to Houston.

Each evening will feature a unique selection of environmentally-themed works.

These performances were made possible by generous support from the Center for Energy and Environmental Research in the Human Sciences (CENHS), Moody Center for the Arts, and the Humanities Research Center’s Public Humanities/Cultural Heritage Initiative funded by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Very special thanks to Rice Electroacoustic Music Labs for providing equipment and technical support for the program.
