Monday, 6/11, 6:30-8pm, at the WaveLab in the Structural and Material Engineering Building.

“Hearing Seascapes” is an interactive multi-media installation that combines imagery and audio data to generate sound for the audience to experience the endangered coral reefs. It uses sounds recorded by bio-acousticians in oceans, and data collected by oceanographers to tell the extraordinary story of coral reefs: how they survive and rebound.

The work came out of an interdisciplinary seminar led by Lei Liang, professor of music at UC San Diego, in collaboration with his colleagues Prof. Falko Kuester of the Engineering Department, and Prof. Stuart Sandin of Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

This seminar will include 4 composers: Yihsien Chen, Alex Stephenson, Anqi Liu and Yixuan Shao. They were joined in the seminar by grad students from Scripps Institute of Oceanography, Visual Arts and Engineering Department.
