Description

A composer dubbed ''King Canute'' has become the first in the world to perform music created by waves - in a swimming pool. Dr Alexis Kirke's became a "giant baton" by covering himself with motion sensors that controlled the water in a swimming pool-like wave tank. The more he moved his arms, the louder and more intense the music became - just like a normal conductor. Dr Kirke, 42, used the sensors on his arms to manipulate the number and size of waves created by 24 giant paddles in the pool.
