World Oceans Day Events

Every year, the mermaid organises an event on 8 June to celebrate World Oceans Day. These events invite anybody to participate in sound explorations – sound being an important medium of communication and exploration under water. In addition, musicians are invited to record tracks all year round as a contribution to a compilation.

World Ocean Day 2010 – Ocean Cover(s)

World Oceans Day 2010 was celebrated at the Utrophia Arts Collective in Deptford. The theme was ‘Ocean Cover(s), so it featured quite a few performances of ocean themed songs and turning other music into ocean themed songs! The compilation was also comprised of ‘ocean covers’.

World Ocean Day Sound/Art 2009

World Oceans Day 2009 coincided with the mermaid & friends returning from making sounds in Japan. Footage from Uzu no Michi was shown & people were again invited to make sounds and contribute to a compilation. There was also an artificial reef picnic area which featured lots of seaweed crackers and jellyfish-themed sweets!

World Ocean Day Sound Laboratory 2008

The World Oceans Day 2008 took place at the Foundry in London. Musicians created a live improvised soundtrack to nearly 5 hours of diving footage which was projected onto a wall in the venue’s basement. Notebook of a Mermaid also contributed to an exhibition called ‘Oceanic’ with a photo series called ‘The London Ocean’ from ‘The Ocean in the City’.

For the promotion of this event, the Mermaid spoke and played live on air (!) – the Resonance FM’s ‘The Foundry’s Late Late Breakfast Show’ on 6 June. Words of the day were of course ‘news / nautical / neverending song’!
