L’Oscuro Oceano Dello Spazio Infinito by Silent Chaos – SURROUNDSOUND @ BAS9

L’Oscuro Oceano Dello Spazio Infinito has been composed for an installation, to be played in a loop on mobile devices, via the locative audio player Sonicmaps, by users who are located alongside the fountains outside Marischal College in Aberdeen. The work has been engineered to sound in a complementary manner with the water movements of the fountain.


sound has commissioned four unique soundscapes to complement the fountains outside Marischal College in Aberdeen.

Ross Whyte: Fountain Tree
Pippa Murphy: Marischal Fountain
Bea Dawkins: As the Fountain
Silent Chaos: L’Oscuro Oceano dello Spazio Infinito (The Dark Ocean of Infinite Space)

Each piece is inspired in a different way by the movement, the rhythm, the sound and the play of light on the water.

To listen to the soundscape whilst you are near the fountain, click on the link to go to the SonicMaps site and follow the onscreen instructions:
