Pete Bennett is a researcher in human-computer interaction at the Bristol Interaction & Graphics Lab.

Liquid Noise uses cymatics to visualise marine bioacoustics and noise pollution.

The technique was originally developed for Annie Moir's documentary A Voice Above Nature. The film explored the impact of underwater noise pollution on humpback whales in Iceland.

I am now collaborating with Pete Bennett on an interactive installation.

We received funding from the Brigstow Institute and ran an online version at the New Interfaces for Musical Expression conference in July 2020.

We will be presenting the physical work at Ramsgate Festival of Sound in September 2020.
