AV Festival 2010 - Sunderland Swimming Pool underwater gig
A rare opportunity to float about in a giant swimming pool, listening to ambient tones echo through the air, whilst below the water line clicks, bleeps and stereophonic birdsong whooshed past. Also quite disconcerting to see the great and the good of the Newcastle music scene in nothing but their swimming costumes. A unique experience; almost like wearing inner ear headphones, but with two feeds of sound travelling to the listener at different speeds. While trying to stay afloat.
