Bathymetric Terrains (by Derek Charke) is a work that muses on the ecology of oceans and tidal bays. Bathymetry is the measurement of water depths. Bathymetric maps chart the land that is covered by water. This is an electroacoustic composition for live performance, computer processing and soundscapes. The work includes multiple flute and guitar parts. Two of the parts are performed live. Additional pre-recorded parts are performed through a PA system or performed live with additional performers.
This work was made possible through a grant from Arts Nova Scotia.
