The world's ocean provides something extraordinary, on scales almost beyond the mind's grasp - an interaction between ocean, atmosphere and land that supports all life. This is a narrative on a grand scale, reminding us we are part of a greater whole.
ex Oceano is a creative venture in sound - a collaborative expression between disciplines and understandings. Ocean researchers expressed their science to a composer. The composer expressed that science back to them in sound - in the making of a symphony - a way to generate a different experience of ocean science and promote understanding of the role of the ocean in supporting life.
Australian composer, Matthew Dewey, worked with PhD candidates, Nick Roden and Rob Johnson from the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania, Hobart.
