World Oceans Day 2018

World Oceans Day Musical Sketch

By June 8, 2018 June 12th, 2020 No Comments

Here’s a musical sketch with accompanying video in celebration of World Oceans Day 2018. The music is for piano and electronics and was composed by me especially for this year’s event.
The visuals manipulate samples from The Smog of the Sea (Ian Cheney, Brushfire Films, 2016) and Cousteau’s Ten Fathoms Deep (Periscope Film digitisation of the Castle Films source, c. 1943).

It’s been a lot of fun making the piece over the last couple of weeks and thank you to everyone who’s tracked the progress this week. I’ll be expanding the material into a larger composition over the next few months so get ready for further posts.

Here’s looking forward to joining in and following the World Oceans Day activities today. It’s @WorldOceansDay if you’re not already following and check out the World Oceans Day website.

Have a good one.
