Photo-a-day 239: Flow

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 5 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

This is part of ~Flow, floating electro-acoustic musical machinery powered by the River Tyne. ~Flow looks a bit like a floating shed moored at Newcastle Quayside, but has intriguing musical innards which produce music according to various aspects of the Tyne’s character at any given time, from its salinity to its turbidity. Apparently, the recent flooding in the North East broke bits of it, but I think they’ve been fixed now.

~Flow forms part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, and was created by the Owl Project and Ed Carter.
