Sound Waves – World Listening Day 2015

Sound Waves for World Listening Day 2015.

Sound Waves formed part of World Listening Day 2015. It celebrated and built on World Listening Day’s 2015 theme of water by presenting a collective reimagining of the sounds of water around the world.

Thirty-eight sound artists from around the world submitted a field recording and reimagining of water somewhere in the world: ocean, river, lake, stream, swimming pool, boiling kettle, splash of a puddle – anything in which water is the defining sound.

By capturing the sounds of water and recontextualising them, we examined our own relationship with water as it surrounds us every day.

A selection of the reimagined sounds were recomposed into one 30-minute piece by us, titled ‘Sound Waves’, a shared sonic reflection on water and the role it plays in our lives.
