Spend time with award-winning sound recordist Chris Watson, known for his natural history work with David Attenborough, recording underwater sounds in Port Erin. As part of a wider research project covering the coast of the Island, join a group of artists, musicians and students from Leeds Beckett & Liverpool John Moores Universities.

We will introduce the project, safety regulations and equipment and provide all the kit: Tascam DR-40 sound recorder with sound card, headphones and hydrophone (underwater microphone). The whole event will last one-hour and we will share each participant’s recording with themselves. After that, we will listen to all recordings and make selections to be available to the public on the website.

To keep the groups small and allow everyone individual attention, ticket numbers are limited and participants must be over 18. This is not suitable for wheelchairs or those with impaired mobility and bringing dogs not advised. The event will have to be cancelled in the case of extreme weather.

Please email Alan Dunn on a.dunn@leedsbeckett.ac.uk by 5pm on Friday 26 April to register your interest, explaining briefly why you would like to participate.

Credits – chosen files will be titled with place, date, title and initials, with a guide to the person’s full name on the website. We retain the right to use these recordings within our research and related presentations – we will provide consent forms to be completed to this effect. We may also use photographs taken during the event for website and social media use. Chosen recordings to be uploaded to: www.malcolmlowry.com.
