GhostNet is a floating installation of sound and light exploring cultural and environmental information at sea performing at coastal locations across the North. Developed by SoundNetwork and artists Steve Symons featuring audio recordings by Jana Winderen,

GhostNet allows audiences to play, explore and engage with marine journeys crossing arrays of information at sea. Live and recorded environmental data, underwater recordings, tidal harmonics and radio spectra interplay making beautiful performances of sound and light. Family audiences take part in digital making workshops that contribute to the floating performance with National Oceanographic Centre (NOC), Maritime Museum, Octopus Collective and local artist and maker communities across the North West of the UK.
