‘You might come out of the water every time singing’
is a 3D audio work to be enjoyed through a platform that vibrates as the shark driven music hovers and spins around you. Made using Galapagos hammerhead shark routes to play digital oscillators variably mixed with processings and underwater recordings in the gallery, it is a live work that will be different every time you come. Do remove your shoes to submerge yourself in this 3D experience. Standing looking just not the same.
Made by Kaffe Matthews in collaboration with Cesar Peñaherrera, Dr Alex Hearn, James Ketchum, Dr Peter Klimley,(UC Davis) on hammerhead shark(Sphryna Lewini)) data and Dr Adam Parkinson on software instrument.
