»Aquatocene / Subaquatic quest for serenity« investigates the phenomenon of underwater noise pollution created by humankind in the seas and oceans.

The audio compositions of the subaquatic soundscape encourages reflection upon the human impact on the underwater habitat, as well as on establishing or maintaining safe sound environments for animals living in the seas, lakes and rivers.
