The copper pipe and the trumpet bell is both a recording device,
a musical instrument and a loudspeaker enclosure, animated by
the surge of the waves on the shore of the sea.
The water is pulling the object softly into and out of the water,
like a stranded instrument played by the breaking waves. A contact
hydrophone in the pipe captured all sounds in its narrow space of
three meters length, water, sand and stones in contact with the
instrument. This recordings are played back within the tube,
accompagnied by the video recordings without sound, retracing the
original recording situation.
