experiments in underwater sound

The first presentation of new material related to underwater sounds, at the Karnatic Lab evening, De Badkuyp, Amsterdam. I was interested to use the opportunity of an informal but public lab setting to put together a live performance that relates environmental recordings of underwater mammal sounds, electronic processes that reflect these natural sound processes, and hydrophone recordings I made in the Amsterdam canals. I was looking at musical properties of sounds that may be outside our natural hearing range, or too fast for us to perceive. By slowing down and lowering pitches I built up a soundscape based on temporal, harmonic and dynamic qualities present in the underwater soundworld.
