Sand Islandis originally composed for headphone listening (using HRTF encoding) and later was realized for loudspeakers. A holiday sandy shore is transformed. Imagine telescoping down to the size of a sea snail. The lazy Norwegian tide and the soft golden sand take on a new perspective. Two hydrophones were buried under the sand in the tidal zone of a small bay on Søndre Sandøy in Hvaler (Norway). After some time the tide lifts the hydrophones out of the sand and carries them into a floating bed of seaweed.
