Hydrophony is an ongoing series of works that utilize underwater sound recording techniques to reveal the hidden soundscapes beneath urban waterways. These field recordings function as both chance sound compositions and observational tools allowing listeners to reflect on the dynamic interplay of nature, commerce, and recreation that characterize these places.
Realized by artists Heather Dewey-Hagborg and Thomas Dexter.
Hydrophony was performed and broadcast live online as part of the Art in Odd Places festival in 2010. Covered by Time Out Magazine And New York Press
Hydrophony has also been exhibited at the New Museum's Festival of Ideas for the New City, Seaworthy at the Elizabeth Foundation Project Space, and the Montior Digital Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2011.
