Sound expedition Hearing Like a Herring
The Embassy of the North Sea seeks to give a voice to the non-human residents of The Netherlands’ most defining ecosystem, the North Sea, starting with a listening phase that engages designers, policy makers, biologists, artists, lawyers, philosophers and writers.
On Saturday September 11, Rewire 2021 will present the first step of the journey: a sound expedition titled Hearing Like a Herring, developed by composer and sound artist Harpo ‘t Hart together with radio-maker Jesper Buursink and artist Xandra van der Eijck.
This intervention at Scheveningen harbour and beach features stories from experts, scientists, and local residents to present new undersea listening perspectives.
