Sea Shanties of the Subconcious
Lorne Pier, Victoria
A sound sculpture driven by the sea, intended to lament the decline of an ecosystem and fishing industry of this locality.
During October and November 2007 it made a a responsive and changeable sound-scape of the ocean as wave and tidal movements forced air up into a tuned set of 14 organ pipes on the pier, tuned to a bass F minor chord.
The piece won two awards as part of the Inaugural Annual Lorne Sculpture Exhibition.
