The Ulysses Syndrome is a sound journey. Following the route of Ulysses along the Mediterranean Sea, we return 3000 years later. Without being seen, hundreds of millions of soundwaves are constantly flying over the surface of the water. Equipped with radio scanners, we have spent the last few months casting a 10 mile net from our boat into the sky, collecting sound fragments, bringing them back in. What you are now hearing is the fresh fish of the day, Tunisian police along the coast, Sri Lankan cargo ships passing by, Libyan fisherman, all radio frequencies popular and obscure, from submarines below, and airplanes above.
We hope you enjoy this poetic journey. Stay tuned…If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed!
