From the start the goal with this project has been to make a sounding interpretation of the act of wavesurfing from the perspective of a surfer and an exploration of the possibility to create soundprints that with music captures and recreates physical movements, experiences and moments of flow.
To do this I have collected physical data from a surfer surfing the waves at Torö Stenstrand (the most "famous" surfbreak in the Stockholm region) that I later connected to chosen musical parameters such as rhythm, pitch, tempo and texture. Because the goal was to capture the experience of surfing waves I also recorded sounds of the waves and the surroundings and mixed it together with the written out music. 2016-05-302016-05-302016-05-30Bibliographically approved
