Rutstein contributed an audio composition for a concert entitled “Sound as Ocean Memory”, part of the Ocean Memory Project, an organization funded by the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative.
The April 9th concert was the culmination of an interdisciplinary workshop, “Sound as Ocean Memory” that took place in March 2021, led by Jonathan Berger (The Denning Family Provostial Professor in Music at Stanford), Timothy Weaver (Biomedia artist, microbiologist and bioenvironmental engineer) & Heather Spence (Marine biologist and sound artist). This workshop focused on the potential of sound in capturing and expressing ocean memories and included musicians, data and sound artists, marine scientists, neuroscientists, and others. “Sound plays a significant role in formulating and preserving memory through its ability to communicate non-verbally with meaning and affect. The inherent temporal nature of sound allows for the representation of processes on multiple time scales.”
