LASER talk @ CADRE New Media SJSU, San Jose

News — 21 February 2019

“Melt Me Into The Ocean: learning from underwater sound”, lecture/performance as part of the LASER (Leonardo Art and Science Evening Rendezvous) series of talks.

How do we engage our sonic intelligence to expand our understanding and empathy towards remote environments such as the ocean? ‘Melt Me Into The Ocean’ is a series of artworks that use deep ocean recordings in site-specific installations and sound walks. The technological ability to retrieve sounds from ocean depths and listen to them in land-bound environments, raises questions as to how our sense of place might expand to integrate the submarine world into the presence of our imagination. Sound is considered as engaging a sense of relatedness that allows participants to imaginatively dive beneath the visual surface of the ocean, encouraging a sense of presence and connectedness to arise from these encounters.
