Making Music with Glaciers and Snow

Written by Valerie Kern

Matthew Burtner is using his experience as a music composer to raise awareness of climate change by making avant-garde soundscapes from Alaska’s wilderness. Matthew, like most other Alaskans, has a front-row seat to climate change and he’s sharing these sounds with the world through his new album, Glacier Music.
