Still a bit of a work in progress but showing promise so far. Really best if you wear headphones – also helps if you can imagine that it is projected really huge on a wall in front of you!

Bruce Foster divesThis piece was inspired by swimming on the Kermadec trip as crossed the Tropic of Capricorn. (You can see actual video footage of us swimming in Bruce’s videos).

While swimming I found myself fascinated by the stunning blueness of the water and the iridescent traces created by air-bubbles as we dived in. I found myself visualizing how this strange event might look to the inhabitance of the water below us.

The sound track is based on the actual sound recordings made at the time but slowed down and played backwards to complete the inversion of the scene. Somewhat appropriately it sounds very much like whale-song.

Watch this space to see where this project ends up…
