Soundscape Installation: White Sound: An Urban Seascape

White Sound: An Urban Seascape (11:41)  In this installation by Bill Fontana, a live audio feed of the Dorset shoreline played out of speakers mounted onto the facade of Wellcome Collection (London) with film footage of the beach screened throughout the three week exhibit. 

"Sounds of crashing waves envelope the building and the surrounding public to create an entirely new acoustic architecture that challenges our sense of place and dissolves the physical sensation of being in the city within an experience of the tidal rhythms of the sea." Source: Wellcome Collection
