Sonic Kayak Collaboration & Upcoming workshop
We’re excited to be working with FoAM Kernow and marine biologist Dr. Kirsty Kemp on a new project, Sonic Kayaks.
Kayaks will be rigged with under-water environmental sensors and above-water speakers. The data gathered will generate music, giving the paddler an extra dimension with which to explore the underwater climate.
The sonification will be developed with Kaffe Matthews. The project will be developed in collaboration with climate science researchers, offering for the first time a citizen-science approach to collecting valuable aquatic microclimate data. This project is funded by FEAST (Cornwall Council and Arts Council England) and the British Science Association.
Step one is a sonic kayak hacklab.
