English electronic band, Massive Attack has teamed up with Tyndall Center for the new powerful short film on Climate Crisis & Live Music. Watch the video below.
The film, ‘Climate Change Research’ is directed by Anthony Tombling Jr, narrated by Massive Attack’s Robert ‘3D’ Del Naja, and features narration from a selection of influential voices. In the short movie, the Bristol group is addressing the climate crisis and how it has been impacted by life touring across the globe.
In November 2019, the group, Massive Attack had announced that they had teamed with the Tyndall Centre to map the carbon footprint of band tour cycles, and “to present options that can be implemented quickly” to curb emissions.
The film features the deliberate collaborators for the low-carbon show, together with Liverpool’s director of culture Claire McColgan and green power industrialist Dale Vince, along with the Tyndall Centre’s Carly McLachlan.
Tyndall Centre’s Carly McLachlan says for an end to drive-in gigs after the COVID-19 pandemic.
She says, “We need to be careful that we don’t reassemble after this period with things like [drive-in gigs] baked in. I think it’s a really critical moment to make sure that as we rebuild the sector—as it comes out of this period of crisis—that we do that in a way that gives it long-term sustainability”.
