Under the Sea

Under Sea from David R Ryle on Vimeo.

I went scuba diving a few times in my life. The last time I went was in the Florida Keys. I happened to have a high fever but still decided to take the trip. We went out to sea much further than I expected and under the water our group went. The water was deep and then I came upon a ridge. The ridge was really an underwater cliff. I never saw anything so deep or frightening. I’m not sure if it was the fever or not but I’ll never forget that scene.

“A live modular recording. Three CGS01 Harmonic Sequencer modules from Catgirl Synth were used to generate melodies automatically. This generative piece reminded me of the virtually unlimited species of creatures under the sea.” – David R Ryle

  1. I had a similar experience, although I was snorkeling, and we weren’t in the Keys but quite a way east from Miami. Same deal-deep water, a ridge that was an underwater cliff, and the abyss-but with an added twist: there was a barracuda riding the current, just hovering there, watching me—it continually adjusted its position so that it was always facing me. I remember it was such a contrast, this shiny, silver beast of a fish, teeth all poking out every which way, gleaming there against the background of dark, midnight blue water. Freaky shit!


    1. Great story… yes sounds familiar. The sea is a strange freaky place!
