#28 Marco de Kretser - Creating Music From the Sounds of Antarctica
Play • 1 hr

Marco de Kretser is a 19-year-old music producer, photographer, environmental science student and adventurer. In March 2019, he went on an expedition to Antarctica as an Antarctic Heritage Trust Inspiring Explorer.

Marco's idea was to record the natural sounds of Antarctica and transform them into music. The result is his epic electronic track, The Frozen Wild.

In this episode we talk about how Marco went about capturing audio on the ice and turning it into a song, the highlights (and lowlights) of the expedition, and his bizarre introduction to photography which started with photographing video game worlds.

Marco is a super talented young guy who tends to work at the intersection of the natural and digital worlds.
