Sea Songs of the Subconscious

Sea Songs of the Subconscious
Setouchi International Festival of Art
Teshima Island, Japan

Assembled on a rocky pier on Kou beach, a set of tuned organ pipes attached to an upturned fishing boat plays a bass F minor chord.
Air is pushed into the pipes through a series of ‘wave pumps’ made to express air from the motions of the sea's surface. As haunting music drifts across the island landscape, the history of Teshima's sea culture is evoked.
