Love Shark - Kaffe Matthews
Sharks are older than dinosaurs. They have evolved with the planet
developing extraordinary perceptive mechanisms, and have learnt to navigate
in straight lines by tracing the shifts in the earth's magnetic crust at
depths as great as 400m. They are still considered violent aggressors and
continue to be slaughtered in vast numbers just for their fins to make
soup. The truth is that a shark has to be one of the most sophisticated and
beautiful of animals.

Love Shark is a new four channel solo by Kaffe Matthews in which she duets
with 6 oscillators driven by 6 hammerhead sharks whose journeys were
recorded north of Wolf Island, Galapagos April 2009. Matthews dived with,
recorded underwater and filmed hammerheads whilst on a month's residency on
the Galapagos islands 2009. She later worked with shark scientists who gave
her this shark hunting journey data. Her 3D sound installation, You might
come out of the water every time singing has shown in Liverpool, Edinburgh,
Lisbon and the St Pieters Caves, Maastricht.

Software instrument collaboration and programming Adam Parkinson.

All the best
