Me & My Whale
"...would you like to come back to mine for some krill?" Sound takes centre stage alongside a misanthropic submarine captain who falls in love with a whale. Featuring a human, a submarine, the entire ocean, underwater singing, motion-capture, generative programming, human-computer interaction, a love song to cetaceans (both toothed and baleen), and one very lonely whale. Me & My Whale
is a performance project that calls out the damaging way we appropriate the sounds of the ocean using an absurdist blend of techniques from sound art, contemporary theatre and experimental music. It integrates innovative audio technology and programming with analogue water-based visuals to tell a powerful, resonant story from the deep sea.
