Wet Sounds = deep listening in water
Joel Cahen, celebrates his ‘Aquadelique’ album release on Adaadat Records with a performance at St George’s Pool with music through 6 channels above and below the water surface.
Underwater sound travels faster, it is immediate and very clear, richer the deeper you go. The movement through the weightless space is trippy.
Bring your swimsuit and goggles and dive into it.
Wet Sounds has won an award at the Adelaide Fringe festival earlier this year.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “…Swimming in water that carries an audible dimension is immensely pleasurable. Noise surrounds you physically. It is both highly individualising as you are wholly immersed in your own senses without the possibility of communication, and extensive as it carries your awareness out across the expanses of your environment… Exploring sound through a co-ordinated fluid, weightless movement. I suspect that it was rather like being in the womb.” – Mizled Youth
