Afternoon Glitter Path* - St.Leonards-On-Sea

A photophonic capture of the English Channel, recorded on Wednesday the 23rd of July, at about four o'clock - a better recording than the one I made a month or so ago. Breezy conditions produce plenty of waves and a noisy signal, which goes right down below the audible threshold. This will be recorded again as a video work soon, hopefully under calmer conditions, which I think will generate rather different audio.

So, it seems the sea looks as the sea sounds...

*From R.A.R Tricker in 'Bores, Breakers, Waves & Wakes' - to describe the vertical path of reflected light down the field of vision from the surface of undulating water.
