About the project

Carbon Composition is a project which converts real-time electricity consumption data from households across the globe into a musical performance.

Each time the software interface is explored, a random score of self-generated music is created, linked to the real-time household electricity consumption data. The project hopes to inform and educate the public, schools and businesses into thinking about how they consume energy and to think about how their energy is sourced (fossil/solar/wind energy).
