Memories Of A River
sonic water installation


Memories Of A River is an installation set up in a boat on the river. People are invited to fish for sounds floating through the waters of Ghent.

This installation is the first prototype of what will become a locative sound installation. During a boat tour on the river of Ghent people can fish for sounds and immerse themselves in many real and fictional happenings.

Through the use of a specific tool (cfr. underwater microphone) two different aural landscapes are connected at the same time; the live underwater sounds picked up by the microphone as well as the many sounds and stories unfolding through underwater speakers.
