WWII sub HMS Alliance used for music recording


Classical composer Marvin Ayres recorded sounds, echoes and reverberations on board HMS Alliance, based at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, in Gosport, Hampshire.

The World War II submarine is the latest venue in his Sacred Spaces project in which he records cellos, violins and viola in historical spaces in order to create a new piece of music.

During his career as a composer, cellist and pianist, Mr Ayres has contributed to albums by bands including Culture Club, Simply Red and Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
