A composer is going to turn an Ocean Wave Machine simulator into a musical instrument. Alexis Kire will strap motion sensing pads to his arms and wrists to translate his conducting into movements of the wave paddles in the tank. Sensors arranged around the pool will detect the water splashing up against the edges and turn that into an accompanying electronic track.
Dr Kirke composed “Sound-Wave” in collaboration with technologist and composer Samuel Freeman, and as a composer-in-residence of Plymouth University’s Marine Institute.
