'The whale moves in a sea of sound.'
(Whale Nation, Heathcote Williams)

A sound piece on choice, voice, and our impending doom. Technologist and water freak XVelastín presents an absurd cross-arts performance about noise in the oceans. Starring a submarine captain, underwater singing, digital sound manipulation, an overhead projector, a love song to cetaceans (both toothed and baleen), and a very lonely whale.

[whalesong] is a subversive, submersive experience; it hates plastic and loves blowholes. It's inspired by the way humanity has stolen whales' voices, using technology to manipulate their language and vindicate us from the destruction of their acoustic ecology. It repurposes the same techniques to present a sonic alternative.
