Come record the bay at our hydrophone workshop hosted by the Exploratorium. Sound artist Chris Kallmyer¬†will lead participants through the creation of an underwater microphone, and then record the bay around the Exploratorium’s new outpost on the Embarcadero.

Participant’s recordings will be installed as a sound installation at the Berkeley Art Museum on the evening on May 6, as part of Machine Project’s Tri-way Hyperlecture Cagematch This is an excellent opportunity to learn about field recording, soldering, and the sonic life under the surface of the bay.

– if you have a recording device, bring it! (optional)

What we will bring
– Hydrophone kit
– Digital Field Recorders (We only have 7 for borrowing!)
