On a scientific expedition to the South Pacific, Paul Duncombe made numerous recordings of the vital habitats of coral reefs, now under threat from oceans that are growing ever warmer. In Tapemoana, he uses this visual data – collected using photogrammetry, 3-D scanning and binocular cameras – to tell a story of our deep seas, both a poetic depiction of the surreally beautiful world below the waves and an urgent call to action. Composer Alex Smoke’s dreamy, ethereal score soundtracks this most alien world beneath the waves.
