An unusual art project, known as Wet Sounds, is touring swimming centres around the UK.

Wet Sounds is an underwater concert with music coming from speakers both under and above the water!

Whilst floating and swimming, concert-goers can listen to the music either above or below the water.

Some people with hearing problems who attend the concerts say that they find it easier to listen to the music from under the water rather than above.

Music sounds different underwater than above due to sound travelling around 4 times faster through water than air.
