Many of us think of the underwater world as a silent and eerie place, but the Sea Songs project shows us that this is not the case. In fact, there’s actually much more to hear below the surface than you might expect!
During workshops delivered by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Invisible Dust in the summer of 2021, Scarborough Sixth Form students explored the wonders of this often unheard soundscape to create a series of sound artworks. These artworks create a walk from Scarborough Castle to a new sculpture planned for the Headland in 2022 (the sculpture is entitled ‘We Are Only Human’ and is being created by Ryan Gander). Together, we gained knowledge about the importance of conservation and the impact of climate change on marine life.
