Louise K. Wilson’s sound installation uses hydrophone recordings to explores the technical machinery deployed by sound recordists and submariners for over-hearing and mishearing the bio-aquatic conversations of the Plymouth Sound on England’s south coast. The particular physical geographic and maritime position of Plymouth’s Tinside Lido – located as a projection into the sea and subject to strong tidal forces – is used as a site for amplifying the sub-aquatic contest between different forms of sonic transmission.
