I'm Dave, a sound artist in the US. I heard about this project through BoingBoing, and came to check it out. I was surprised to see how interesting it was, despite my near-total disinterest in meteorology and naval history. Seriously, if you'd asked me to come up with something guaranteed to bore me to tears, I could have only added "watching American Idol" to make the mix more potent. But I'm hooked anyway, go fig!
I think it is knowing that my ship (the HMS Attack) ends up on the bottom of the Mediterranean that drew me in. I'm very much caught by the thought of these logs being kept in such a precise manner by people who would, about a year later, be torpedoed. From what I've read so far, the HMS Attack lost 10 men while attempting to save sailors from another vessel. So I figure that the least I can do is to help see that some of their work lives on in a fashion.
