Aquatocene / Subaquatic Quest for Serenity investigates the phenomenon of underwater noise pollution created by humankind in the seas and oceans. The sound composition is performed by the mixing of the sound that had been recorded and produced on 3 different vinyls. Compositions are a mix of bioacoustic of marine life sounds (e.g. shrimps, fish, sea urchins), the aquatic acoustic, and a human noise presence in the world's oceans and seas. Technological interventions into the ocean soundscape by ship sonars or sound cannons (used in oils exploration) can create huge disturbances in a fragile underwater habitat and have been connected to a number of effects ranging from the beaching of whales, to the »Lombard effect«, where certain species themselves become louder to overcome background noise, thereby gradually increasing the intensity of the entire habitat. Acoustic compositions to hear on the Aquatocene vinyls are: Aegean Sea – Izmir (TR) – Aquatocene – 38°26’24.7′′N 27°07’12.9′′E, Adriatic Sea – Dubrovnik (HR) – Aquatocene - 42°38’26.5′′N 18°06’20.4′′E, Adriatic Sea – Koper (SI) – Aquatocene – 45°32’54.9′′N 13°42’20.1′′E, Atlantic Ocean – Roscoff (FR) – Aquatocene- 48°43’38.2′′N 3°59’33.4′′W, North Sea – Bergen (NO) – Aquatocene – 60°24’49.2′′N 5°16’54.9′′E
