Join Doug Brush and Nikki Berry as they weave the musical magic of Random Acts of Music through the reading of the IPCC report on the state of the climate. This is part of the 1.5 Degrees live
Turn up and play, or observe. The choice is yours. We'll make a great and profound composition together.

Random Acts of Music is a form of street art. In a public place, using accessible instruments, we set up a groove and some basic guidance that allows anyone who wishes to be involved to participate in a music making experience. Often completely improvised, sometimes based on a set composition, each R.A.M. moment is unique.

Poets, solo instrumentalists, singers and rappers can build on the groove to improvise their art.

The line between 'audience' and participant becomes increasingly blurred as innocent passers by are called to join the humming, pulsing thing that is Random Acts of Music.
