Sea Hear originated with recordings of people’s memories of the sea or seaside. These stories are then relayed and remixed through miniature speakers embedded in a small beach of pebbles. The recordings mingle and merge into a sea of sound where the voices are barely distinguishable, and only on holding and lifting a pebble to the ear can individual stories be heard.
Sea Hear was part of Seeing Sound from Inside Out at Fringe Arts Bath in 2015. Visitors to the exhibition were invited to record their memories and experiences of the sea.
