Aquarium Music is a generative electroacoustic installation to be held in the Brighton Sea Life Centre in May 2018.

The installation will feature soundscapes composed of geographically appropriate field recordings using both directional and hydrophonic microphones.

Here is an example of a field recording recently recorded for the project.

For the project I have decided to make my own hydrophones, which are in the early stages of development. The following images show the process that went into water proofing the contact microphones. The following audio clip shows the sound they record when placed in a water fountain.
