Passing Pluto, 8pm Friday 1st February

passing-pluto-minories

A new performance, specifically made for this Late Night at The Minories event:

Whales often communicate at a frequency too low for humans to hear, and their calls can travel vast distances through the oceans. A recording of whalesong is included on The Golden Record, currently hurtling through space on the Voyager 2 spacecraft. This performance lecture explores these startling distances, and attempts to visualize the enormous soundwaves of whalesong.

I’ve got two exciting things happening in February: firstly, on Friday 1st February I will be presenting a new piece at ‘Late Night at The Minories’, Colchester, about the physical properties of whalesong.

Following that I will be jetting off to Japan to present ‘Hear a Pin Drop Here’ and ‘One Minute Birdwatching’ in Yokohama, as part of Forest Fringe at TPAM. http://www.tpam.or.jp/showing/internationalshowcase/674/?lang=en
