An Ocean of Sound

Online Event

Organized by Newcastle University

This event was due to take place as an immersive sound installation at the Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle upon Tyne. I have decided to put together an online version that aims to introduce people to the wonderful and diverse selection of sounds within our oceans. The project is the culmination of an experimental creative research collaboration that aims to intercept acoustic data collected by the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) with a Newcastle University developed marine communication technology. This data will form the basis for a sound installation, inviting listeners to imagine the world from an oceanic perspective. The installation would have featured multiple works for headphones, film excerpts and a uniquely constructed 'sound dome' to immerse listeners in the underwater sounds of the Hebrides and North Sea. Curated by David de la Haye with assistance from Tim Shaw, this event is supported by the Newcastle Institute of Creative Arts Practice.
