Carey, Melissa. 2016 Data from: The Boatman Chronicles Part 2: Track 12. Southern Cross University. http://dx.doi.org/10.4226/47/5806b1dfbf6e5
Part of a series of sound files produced as part of PhD thesis, titled 'Intermedia Frottage: visual representation of music & aural representation of image'.
In Greek mythology, Charon the boatman ferried the souls of the dead across the underground river Styx, from the land of the living to Hades' underworld. Sounds in this four part suite have been created from an image of a flooded underground tunnel with graffiti-covered walls.
Track 12 in Part 2, sounds of dripping water and the splash of the Boatman's oars have been added, with spectrographic images in the visual score. These sounds have been used as a sample source for further sound creation from the original image, creating the deep gurgling and lightning-like sounds.
The sound files are in a compressed format, and the full fidelity audio CD is available for loan with the exegesis from Southern Cross University Library (or from the creator). Similarly, the imagery is not available on the website collection, but a DVD or imagery is also available for loan with the exegesis from Southern Cross University Library (or from the creator).
