PALAOA dreams is made from and inspired by the sound of rubbing Antarctic sea ice recorded at the remote PALAOA underwater acoustic observatory.

The Perennial Acoustic Observatory in the Antarctic Ocean, or PALAOA, records the sounds of whales and other sea life, icebergs and mysterious phenomena from an unmanned research station located near the Neumayer Station on the ice shelf of Atka Bay, Antarctica.

Polar Sounds is a collaboration between Cities and Memory, the Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB) and the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI).

The sound clips chosen for the project were recorded from hydrophones located in the Arctic and Antarctic seas and consist of a mixture of biotic, geophonic and anthropogenic sounds.

“My aim with PALAOA dreams was to enhance the feeling and mood of the original recording made at the acoustic observatory. Without my additions and embellishments getting in the way or worse, overwhelming the mysterious Antarctic ice sounds, I want to transport listeners to a polar wilderness whether they are aware of the technical background to the piece and project or not.”

The Polar Sounds project has already had coverage by BBC Radio 4, BBC 6 Music, Canada Today, Daily Mail, the New Scientist and many more international media outlets.
