INSTRUMENT FOR THE OCEAN TO PLAY

FOUNDATION CIVILIZATION

INCEPTION DATE: MAY 2001

 

Temporarily installed at the horizon from one of world's five ocean shores, Corday's Foundation Civilzation Project Instrument For The Ocean To Play uses tidal energy to displace and amplify pressurized air to create a low-frequency sound from the ocean. With variables created to release pressure before its set PSI, the instrument's sound is a rare and signifigant event.

 

Additional investigations:

SALT WATER/AIR BATTERY

 

FREQUENCY RESONANCE

 

ALGORYTHYMS OF OCEAN DATA INTO MUSIC

via onboard barameter, temperature, other sensors data sent by satellite to Museum or Foundation to play the instrument’s collected data as compostion.

 

OCEAN WAVE ENERGY

instrument can contribute thoughts towards  scientific investigations

 

Since Spring 2001, Foundation Civilization is an organization led by Corday focusing on projects at the intersection of Art + Science.
