Nicola Rae - Soundings, pett level, sussex (2009)
During this acoustic experiment microphones were placed against a breakwater at Pett Level, as the waves were crashing against this wood structure. The microphones were buried under layers of stones, which allowed the sound vibrations of the waves to travel along the wooden structure of the breakwater like a sounding board. The sound recording was then loaded into a sound emission analysing computer program, 'SeaWave', which allowed the sounds to be visualised as a graphic showing frequency in relation to time.
