Pathway To Paris

Pathway To Paris, a special concert starring Patti Smith, aims to highlight the importance of the Paris Agreement is to be staged at Theatre Royal Glasgow on 31st October.

Pathway To Paris

About Pathway To Paris

Pathway to Paris, which will held on Sunday 31 October in collaboration with Regular Music, will focus on the importance for nations to push for, achieve, and go beyond the climate targets highlighted in the Paris Agreement, and for cities to lead the way.

Bringing together leading musicians, artists, thinkers, and policymakers, this concert will serve as a call to action, urging the international community to ramp up ambition towards a climate safe future for all.

The first Pathway to Paris concert took place in Paris in 2015, and coincided with the adoption of the Paris Agreement. In 2017 at the United Nations Secretariat, Pathway to Paris announced their 1000 Cities initiative for Carbon Freedom. The initiative invites all cities of the world to transition off fossil fuels and move to 100% renewable energy as soon as possible in order to turn the Paris Agreement into reality.

The concert will feature Patti Smith, Tenzin Choegyal and Soundwalk Collective (in collaboration with Patti Smith and Jesse Paris Smith) to perform Crisis of the Lost, a sound piece composed of underwater recordings deriving from the TBA21-Academy sound archive that documents the voice of ocean life in contrast with the destructive impact of manmade acoustic pollution over all species of marine life.

Crisis of the Lost is part of a collaborative body of work and series of album projects between Patti Smith and Soundwalk Collective, entitled Correspondences, due for publication and release in Spring 2022.

The live performance is accompanied by visualizations by Territorial Agency to provide visceral insights into the scale and mechanics of the ecological threat that is sound pollution in the ocean. The piece features additional recordings carried out by sound artist Jana Winderen during field trips in Belize, Panama, Dominican Republic, Norway and Iceland; as well as recorded detonations of the seismic airgun blasting acquired from Simone Baumann Pickering’s lab at Scripps Institute for Oceanography, and cello written and performed by Lucy Railton.

Pathway to Paris Founders Jesse Paris Smith and Rebecca Foon will also be performing throughout the evening. Speakers include 350.org’s Bill McKibben and other special guests to be announced soon.

All proceeds from this evening will be donated to Pathway to Paris’ 1000 Cities Initiative for Carbon Freedom.
